Sen. Michael Crapo (R – Idaho) has announced that house Republicans will look to block any appointments for Director of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) until the agency is restructured, according to BankCreditNews.com.

“This issue isn’t about Richard Cordray,” Crapo said. “It is about the agency itself and how it was structured. We are not prepared to move forward with any nominee.
