Existing law, the California Finance Lenders Law, provides for the licensure and regulation of finance lenders and brokers.

This bill would also exempt, until January 1, 2022, a person who makes one commercial loan in a 12-month period from regulation pursuant to the California Finance Lenders Law.
Vote: MAJORITY   Appropriation: NO   Fiscal Committee: YES   Local Program: NO  

The people of the State of California do enact as follows:


 Section 22050.5 is added to the Financial Code, to read:

 (a) This division does not apply to any person who makes one loan in a 12-month period if that loan is a commercial loan as defined in Section 22502.
(b) This section shall remain in effect only until January 1, 2022, and as of that date is repealed.
