Senate Bill Would Tighten Payday Lending Laws
You see them on every street corner in Nevada – short-term, high-interest loan businesses, also known as payday loans.
Nevadans for the Common Good estimate that there are more payday loan centers in Nevada than Starbucks and McDonalds combined.
The businesses give cash advances, often at a high rate that can be difficult to pay down.
Now, lawmakers want to limit what lenders can charge customers.
