(KCPW News) A Democratic state lawmaker is targeting payday lenders with a bill that aims to outlaw their ability to choose where to take borrowers who default on their loans to court. As KCPW’s Whittney Evans reports, Senator Ben McAdams of Salt Lake City says borrowers should be able to fight their cases close to home.
A statement later sent from Utah Consumer Lending Association spokesperson Wendy Gibson, who is also District Manager for Check City, says the company hopes to meet with McAdams very soon to discuss his legislation. It adds that Check City has responded to customers’ concerns by changing the location of its court hearings to a more local venue.
