The CFPB proposed changes that would significantly limit how businesses can use consumer data under the FCRA. The removal of medical debt from credit reports, the prohibition of the sale of data for unlawful purposes, and the inclusion of data brokers and aggregators under the FCRA are all suggested changes.
