Wyoming Enacts Mortgage Loan Originator Licensing and Registration

State Issues

On March 12, Wyoming Governor Dave Freudenthal signed HB 169, a bill that modifies the Wyoming Residential Mortgage Practices Act and Uniform Consumer Credit Code to provide for mortgage loan originator licensing and registration. Among other things, the bill details (i) the initial application process, (ii) pre-licensing education, (iii) testing requirements, (iv) the renewal process, and (v) continuing education requirements. While the bill goes into effect July 1, 2009, loan originators have until July 1, 2010 to register or obtain licensure.
