House To Pass Credit Card Reform, Tell The Senate To, Too

The House is expected to pass the Credit Cardholders’ Bill of Rights Act today, and the Senate is considering similar legislation. The Senate battle will be harder, but you can help!

Consumers Union has set up an action alert where you can call your Senators toll-free and tell them you’re sick of being screwed by banks and credit card companies, and you’d like them to support S. 414, the Credit CARD Act.

To find out more about the current credit card legislation, check out last week’s post, or the text of the House and Senate bills themselves.
