(3) establish federal regulations regarding licensing, education, and experience requirements for mortgage brokers and loan officers in non-bank companies;
(4) require that disclosures be written in plain language and prominently displayed in a manner that is visually clear and effectively communicates the intended information to the potential borrower;
