More on Consumer Protection
WASHINGTON – Today Congresswomen Karen Bass (D-CA) and Suzanne Bonamici (D-OR) introduced a resolution to raise awareness about the barrage of fraud attempts that seniors face nationwide. The resolution encourages Congress to implement policies to prevent senior scams from happening and to improve protections from these scams. The resolution would also support the designation of May 15, 2018, as "National Senior Fraud Awareness Day".
WASHINGTON - Senator Jeff Merkley and Reps. Suzanne Bonamici and Elijah Cummings introduced the Stopping Abuse and Fraud in Electronic (SAFE) Lending Act Tuesday, aimed at cracking down on some of the worst abuses of the payday lending industry, particularly in online payday lending, and protect consumers from deceptive and predatory practices that strip wealth from working families.
U.S. Rep. Suzanne Bonamici and her hosts at Mirador had different things to talk about during her recent visit to the small-business lending platform in Portland.
For Bonamici, an Oregon Democrat, it was the flaws in a pending renewal of federal aid to higher education — particularly the changes backed by Republicans that she views as narrowing the opportunities for students to obtain aid.
