AFSA Testifies on Rules on HB 2008

AFSA Testifies on Rules on HB 2008

AFSA’s Senior Vice President Danielle Fagre Arlowe recently testified before the Oregon House Committee on Rules on HB 2008. The bill would make changes to state law related to debt collection. In her testimony, Arlowe expressed concern that the bill’s provisions would limit the ability of creditors to collect on delinquent debts. As currently written, the bill would create an unworkable standard for creditors to collect on and enforce debts, which would ultimately reduce the availability of affordable forms of credit for the state’s most vulnerable consumers. 

In addition to Arlowe’s testimony, AFSA’s President and CEO Bill Himpler sent a letter to the committee detailing AFSA’s concerns with the bill.

This letter, along with SGA’s other comment letters and testimonies, can be found on the SGA direct advocacy section of AFSA’s website.
