Major Laws that Affected Industry
- The Dodd–Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act of 2010 empowers the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) to regulate payday loan industry, payday lenders of all sizes specifically.
- The Military Lending Act of 2006 imposes a 36% rate cap on small cash loans offered by payday lenders to military members and their dependents; the law also prohibits certain terms in such loans.
- The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau's 2017 Payday Lending Rule covers payday loans, auto title loans, and also a list of other small cash loans. The new rule enforces lenders to determine the borrower’s ability to repay, it also sets a limit on repeat borrowing and restricts access to the borrower’s checking or prepaid debit card account for lenders. The rule was supposed to come into effect in 2019, however, there were several attempts to shut it down by lawmakers.
At the present moment, many of its key provisions haven’t yet come into effect. One of the earlier proposals, for example, amends the rule and eliminates the requirement to check the “ability to pay” (for certain loans). The recent proposal leaves intact the rule's payment restrictions but the compliance date for the 2017 final rule is being delayed until November 2020.
