Furthermore the license expiration date is moved from March 31 to December 31 of each year for industrial loan and thrift companies.

Finally, the requirement for mortgage lenders, brokers, and servicers to submit an annual report to the regulator is eliminated.

The bill is Senate Bill 1202, and is available here.
