LWVAL Call to Action
(Issued April 22, 2017)
Please call your representative to
oppose bad lending bill HB314.
The League of Women Voters of Alabama, along with the Southern Poverty Law Center and Alabama Arise, opposes HB314 and its companion bill in the Senate, SB249. HB314 will be considered by the State House of Representatives on Tuesday, April 25. We need your help to stop this bill from going forward. Please call your representative in the state House and ask him or her to OPPOSE this bad lending bill. (Find your representative.)
HB314 would expand the Small Loan Act to include loans of up to $1500 (instead of $1000). It places these loans on a more expensive rate basis and tacks on some additional costs. The interest rate of loans covered by HB314, currently about 30%, would increase to up to 174%. We recommend an interest cap of no more than 36%. Passage of this bill would make borrowing more expensive for low income people.
Thank you for taking action to oppose HB314 before Tuesday, April 25th!
