How the Finance Bill Affects Consumers

Print comment Post Comments
"For consumers trying to figure out what the financial overhaul bill means for them, the legislation the Senate passed Thursday offers some tantalizing possibilities. Merchants might offer more discounts to people who pay cash. You could get a free credit score every time a lender or landlord penalizes you with a high interest rate or rejects your application because your score is not up to snuff. Many mortgage prepayment penalties would go away. And there will be a consumer financial protection agency, despite many efforts to kill it off.But some of the measures that could have the most impact on consumers are not in the House version of the bill that passed in December. So we will not know which new rules will exist in what form until the two sides haggle in conference and produce a final bill."
