Texas Senate passes payday lending bill
AUSTIN, Texas (5/26/11)--The Texas State Senate passed two bills Monday that will regulate payday lenders. HB252 requires credit service organizations to give consumers “adequate information” about costs they will be charged before they sign any lending agreements (The Texas Tribune May 23). The bill expands notice and disclosure requirements for lenders. A companion bill--HB 2594--requires payday and car-title lenders to be licensed and regulated by the state of Texas. The two bills now go back to the Texas House of Representatives for another review. If the House approves the legislation, the bills go to Gov. Rick Perry for signature.
