The League of Women Voters of the Austin Area invites the public to a free presentation on Payday & Auto Title Loans in Texas, on October 11 from 2:30-4:30 at Trinity United Methodist Church, 4001 Speedway, Austin, TX.
A brief overview of payday and auto title loans in Texas will be followed by a panel discussion. Jennifer Allmon, Ann Baddour, Dana Edgerton, Bee Morehead, Matt Pogor, and Howard Porter will discuss their perspectives on the issue. RSVP is not necessary.
Payday and auto title loans are currently the subject of intense scrutiny at all levels of government and widely discussed in the media. Panelists will discuss possible regulations of these loans so that lenders function both as a consumer service and a successful business, alternatives to payday and auto-title loans, and educational initiatives to decrease consumer need for short-term loans.
