Capping interest rates at 36% is astounding. Credit card interest rates are at or fast approaching that now. Hasn't anyone heard of "usury"? 36% is usury. 25% is usury. The banking industry is beyond control. Their fees make their current rates of 30+% more like 40% or 50%. Laws from ancient times outlawed these rates.

This bill puts payday loan & title loan companies & in the same category of consumer loan companies.
Payday loans need strict regulation on the federal level. Consumer loan companies are highly regulated on the state level & should remain the same.
Insurance products are voluntary & serve a useful purpose. They should not be included in the APR.Only true finance charges & fees should be included.
