In addition to its licensing authority, the Consumer Credit Division also administers various laws related to consumer credit issues. Administrative orders relating to consumer credit issues may be found on this web site.

Connecticut is one of five states that the Federal Reserve Board exempts from the federal Truth in Lending Act. This permits local enforcement of the Truth in Lending Law.
