    "What CFPB's First No-Action Letter Signals"

    The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) yesterday issued its first ever No-Action Letter (NAL) through its Project Catalyst initiative, and the industry – particularly entities in the realm of emerging financial technologies (FinTech) – are looking to determine what it may herald for the future. As discussed in

    this bulletin, the NAL is less of a harbinger of the agency’s intent to provide regulatory relief to the FinTech sector, than a confirmation of its continuing exploration of alternative data as a means to increase the availability of credit to underbanked populations, which could prove highly beneficial to the industry.


    "Eight Regulations the IRS Says Are “Unduly Complex,” Impose “an Undue Financial Burden on Taxpayers” or Exceed the IRS’s Statutory Authority"

    Responding to President Donald Trump’s Executive Order 13789, which called on the Secretary of the Treasury to submit an interim report identifying any significant tax regulations issued since January 1, 2016 that (i) impose an undue financial burden on taxpayers; (ii) add undue complexity to federal tax laws; or (iii) exceed the statutory authority of the IRS, the IRS has released Notice 2017-38, which lists eight regulations that it has determined meet one or more of these criteria.

    Notably, no regulations were identified as exceeding the statutory authority of the IRS.

    This Stroock Special Bulletin provides an overview of these eight regulations, with particular focus on three that have received widespread attention and comment.


    "New Reporting Requirements For Foreign Travel and Foreign Contacts by Government Contractors"

    With the summer travel season underway, private sector government contractors and subcontractors should remember that the Director of National Intelligence ("DNI") has established new reporting requirements regarding foreign travel and foreign contacts for those who have been granted access to classified information, or who occupy “a sensitive position.” Effective June 12, 2017, the DNI issued Security Executive Agent (“SecEA”) Directive 3 (“Reporting Requirements for Personnel with Access to Classified Information or Who Hold a Sensitive Position”).

    This Stroock Special Bulletin provides an overview of SecEA Directive 3, including definitions of “covered individuals” and “sensitive position,” and procedures regarding official and unofficial foreign travel.
