ACA's Advocacy Agenda Will be Ready to Implement
After the Election
We look forward to continuing to serve our members by leading them
through the next four years, no matter what they may look like.
By Leah Dempsey

W

hen crafting an advocacy
agenda in Washington, D.C., in
a presidential election year, it's
always critical to look ahead to what the
next four years might look like. And with
all the twists and turns that 2020 provided,
it was more important than ever for ACA
International to prepare for a variety of
outcomes and work across both sides of the
aisle as we look ahead to the 117th Congress
and four years under the leadership of the
next administration.
This year the accounts receivable
management (ARM) industry is facing
an unprecedented level of attention from
federal lawmakers and regulators as we

engage with decision-makers on misguided
legislation in response to COVID-19, well
over two dozen bills that impact operations
in the industry, a debt collection rule from
the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau,
and continue to advocate for action from
the Federal Communications Commission
to address key issues about the Telephone
Consumer Protection Act and call blocking
and labeling.
The outcome of the 2020 election
plays a pivotal role in determining the
strategy for several key issues impacting
the ARM industry. If Democrats flip the
Senate, the White House or both, we may
need to pivot our efforts on key issues.

Alternatively, if Republicans remain in
control of the Senate and White House,
it will be important to continue our
proactive work to support finalizing rules
from the CFPB, push for opportunities at
the CFPB-such as advisory opinions that
provide industry clarity and additional
reforms to the consumer complaint
database-work with our coalition to
finish the work on call blocking and
labeling and the TCPA at the FCC, and
strategize other proactive legislation that
benefits the industry.
There has also been much speculation
that if the Democrats sweep in the
election, they will abolish the filibuster
