Letter to Congress from 325 groups urging repeal of OCC's "True Lender" Rule

U.S. PIRG and all state PIRGs join 300+ consumer, faith and civil rights groups in letter to Congress urging repeal of the recent "True Lender" rule promulgated as a midnight regulation by the acting Comptroller of the Currency (OCC). The rule will overturn 200 years of case law and allow national banks to partner with fintechs to unleash predatory payday lending nationwide. Fully 45 states have rate caps on some installment loans. As of today, 23 March, 18 states and the District of Columbia now have caps that effectively ban predatory loans with 36% APR usury ceilings, protecting 110 million consumers.
