There is a large and unjustified discrepancy between the rights and protections provided to Massachusetts consumers who purchase motor vehicles and those who lease. Courts have remarked upon the inherent unfairness of denying these protections to Massachusetts lease
consumers. Massachusetts bill (S.B. 127) would impose no new obligations on dealers or finance companies other than what currently exists for consumer motor vehicle sales or is required by federal law.

NACA joins consumer, health, legal and public interest groups to strongly oppose H.R. 1215: The “Protecting Access to Care Act of 2017.” This bill would limit the legal rights of injured patients and families of those killed by negligent health care. The bill’s sweeping scope covers not only cases involving medical malpractice, but also cases involving unsafe drugs and nursing home abuse and neglect.

NACA urges U.S. House members to vote NO on the Financial CHOICE Act of 2017 (H.R. 10). The bill would dismantle the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act, passed in 2010 to remedy the flaws in the U.S. economic system that invited reckless conduct and ushered in the 2008 Great Recession. In particular,  NACA urges rejection of the dangerous sections of the bill that aim to sabotage the work and mission of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB).

The undersigned 235 consumer, civil rights, labor and small business organizations strongly urge the U.S. Senate to oppose H.J. Resolutions 73 & 62, which would repeal the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau’s prepaid card protection rule.

NACA joined 78 community and public interest organizations to express our opposition to the “Financial CHOICE Act” and to urge House Financial Services Committee members to oppose this bill. This legislation would be better dubbed “Wall Street’s CHOICE Act”, as it would have a devastating effect on the capacity of regulators to protect the public interest and defend consumers and investors from Wall Street wrongdoing and the economy from risks created by too-big-to-fail financial institutions. It would expose consumers, investors, and the public to greatly heightened risk of abuse in their regular dealings with the financial system, and our economy as a whole to a far greater risk of instability and crisis.

April 25, 2017 | Filed under: Other Areas of Interest | Tagged with: CFPB

NACA submitted a letter to the U.S. House Financial Services Committee urging the committee members to reject legislation called the "Financial Choice Act." The legislation, broad in breadth and scope, unabashedly seeks to dismantle the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act, the law passed to remedy flaws in the U.S. economic system that led to the 2008 Great Depression and the loss of homes, jobs, businesses and economic security for millions of Americans. In particular, we urge rejection of the dangerous sections of the bill that aim to sabotage the work and mission of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB).
