CFA, Public Interest Groups Oppose H.R. 1849 – Practice of Law Technical Clarification Act of 2017

Letter to US House Committee on Financial Services

CFA, alongside a number of community, consumer, and civil rights groups, is urging members of the US House Committee on Financial Services to oppose H.R. 1849, the Practice of Law Technical Clarification Act of 2017. Passage of this bill would hurt consumers, especially people who have recently lost jobs, had a death in the family, or suffered another type of devastating personal loss. It would eradicate essential protections against abusive and deceptive debt collection practices by collection attorneys.
