House Bill 2019

by The CAB Man Texas on March 6, 2013

This bill was authored by Craddick, and is “relating to a limitation of total charges in connection with certain extensions of consumer credit facilitated by a credit service organization.” The bill states it is amending Texas Finance Code Chapter 393, subchapter D by adding 393.308 which states that the total charges on a arranged by CSO loan cannot exceed those outlined in Texas Finance Code Chapter 342, E & F. There are pending changes to Chapter 342 in SB 823 from Carona it is possible that this bill intends to correspond with that bill. Or, this could be a way to address the methods allegedly employed by operators to adapt to local ordinances. Currently, a maximum of either 24% APR or 80% APR is chargeable on “regulated lender loans” under Chapter 342. Credit Access Businesses (or at least that use of that exact term) are absent from this bill. HB 2019 would go into effect on 9-1-2013.
