AFSA Opposes MA H.4806

On Monday, AFSA sent a letter to Massachusetts Governor Charlie Baker opposing H.4806, a bill related to security breaches. As currently written, the bill would prohibit lenders to view consumer’s credit information in order to make pre-approved and pre-screened offers of credit, which lowers overall costs. AFSA urged Governor Baker not to sign the bill and instead propose amendments and return the bill to the legislature. Full text of the letter is available in the Comment Letters area of the AFSA website.
