AFSA Comments on Legislation Affecting Floorplan Lending

On June 25, AFSA submitted a comment letter to the California Assembly Committee on Banking and Finance in opposition to Senate Bill 1235, which would create a new set of disclosures that commercial lenders would be required to provide borrowers at the time credit is initially offered. Though AFSA members primarily offer consumer credit, many member companies also provide financing to commercial entities, which includes regularly engaging with automobile dealers to provide them with floorplan lending necessary to enable these dealers to acquire their inventories of vehicles. The bill was scheduled for consideration at a hearing later that day.
