What’s the Real Cost of Payday Lending in Kentucky?

Public Invited to Speak, Listen & Learn at Local Hearings

Kentucky’s Consumers’ Advisory Council along with the Attorney General’s Office of Consumer Protection has scheduled three public hearings to gather facts and take public testimony on the issue of payday lending.  The hearings are free and open to the public.

KCRL expects Kentucky’s General Assembly to deal with payday lending practices again in it’s 2011 Regular Session.
