Rule making related to licensing sanctions regarding student loan debt

The Iowa Division of Banking hereby amends Chapter 19, "Mortgage Loan Originators," Iowa Administrative Code.

Legal Authority for Rule Making

This rule making is adopted under the authority provided in Iowa Code sections 17A.3 and 535D.21.

State or Federal Law Implemented

This rule making implements, in whole or in part, Iowa Code chapters 17A and 535D.

Purpose and Summary

These amendments rescind the Division's rules regarding denying an application for a mortgage loan originator (MLO) license when the applicant is in default or delinquent on student loan debt as determined by the College Student Aid Commission pursuant to Iowa Code chapter 261. In 2019, the Legislature enacted 2019 Iowa Acts, Senate File 304, which repealed Iowa Code sections 261.121 to 261.127, effectively repealing the provisions whereby the College Student Aid Commission could issue a certificate of noncompliance for failure to repay student loans. The amendments reflect the changes made by Senate File 304 and rescind the Division's rules implementing the now-defunct certificate of noncompliance program.
