Boxer Introduces Bill to Deter Predatory Lending

Written by
In effort to reign in the power of certain lending companies that charge high fees to consumers, U.S. Senator Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.) along with Democratic colleagues introduced the “Protecting Consumers from Unreasonable Credit Rates Act,” in effort to eliminate excessive rates and fees that some consumers are charged for car title loans, payday loans, and other types of credit. A related bill was introduced in the House of Representatives that would create an interest rate and fee cap of 36% for all consumer credit transactions, ending excessive rates which can sometimes be up to 300%. Many states have already enacted the 36% cap; for military personnel and their families, a similar cap has been imposed.
