Democracy Is Not A Spectator Sport
OTOCвЂ™s Payday Lending Action Team was doing work for a long period to fight interest that is inhumane on delayed deposit loans. In 2020 we have been taking part in a state wide ballot effort to place paid down rates of interest into law.
2020 Ballot Initiative
A coalition of nonprofits over the continuing state have teamed up to place this problem in the ballot. This calls for getting 85,000 signatures of authorized voters before 3, 2020 july. Within these 85,000 signatures, 36 counties require 5% o their voters that are registered signal. Then, if the issue qualifies, it should be from the November 2020 ballot for Nebraskans to vote on.
Amend Nebraska statutes to cut back the total amount that delayed deposit solutions licensees, also called payday loan providers, may charge to a maximum apr of thirty-six %; to prohibit payday lenders from evading this price cap; and also to deem void and uncollectable any deal manufactured in breach for this price limit.
If this Petition is positioned from the 2020 ballot and passed away by Nebraska voters, parts 45-918 and 45-919 of this Delayed Deposit Services Licensing Act statutes will be amended to reflex the item with this Petition.
July 3, 2020 вЂ“ Petition signatures should be turned in Nov.3, 2020 вЂ“ Election Day
