On May 13, 2015, the United States Hispanic Chamber of Commerce (USHCC) and the Community Financial Services Association of America (CFSA) will host a policy and research summit in Washington, D.C. on “Consumer Credit Under Assault: Does the Data Support the Rhetoric?”

At the summit, there will be a discussion of the CFPB’s recent contemplated proposals taking aim at payday and other short-term loans and their potential impact on small businesses and consumers.  In addition to Arizona Congressman David Schweikert and representatives of USHCC and CFSA, other  guest speakers include Professors Ronald Mann and Jennifer Priestley, the authors of two recent studies examining the effect of short-term lending on consumers’ financial health.

The event is open to media and requires an RSVP.
