Although the bill was signed by the Governor, a last minute change eliminated the task force portion of the task force bill. Instead the DFS, NY’s financial services regulator, is tasked with conducting its own study of online lending. The results of their findings are to be submitted to the Governor for review by July 1, 2018.

NY CapitolAn online lending task force DFS study will be coming soon to New York, according to legislative records. The New York State bill proposed in June and covered by deBanked, was reportedly signed by Governor Cuomo on December 29th, right before the end of the year.

The law calls for the formation of a 7-person task force to analyze online lending activity in the state. Three members of the task force are to be appointed by the governor, two by the president of the senate, and two by the speaker of the assembly. They are also expected to submit recommendations to the governor based on their findings.

The task force DFS study will examine both small business lending and consumer lending.
