DFI has filed a CR-101 to implement amendments (Sec. 106 of S. 2155, Public Law No. 115-174) to the federal SAFE act (the federal law requiring the licensure of individual mortgage loan originators (MLOs). In addition, the department will consolidate rules relating to MLOs, currently found in both the Mortgage Broker Practices Act and Consumer Loan Act (chapter 208-620 WAC), into a new chapter to assist licensees in finding and understanding the rules that apply to their licenses. Other amendments may include changes to the rules regulating trust accounts to reduce conflict with other state laws, and technical changes for clarity and consistency.
