Mississipi Financial Service Centers – Alert

For those of us interested in Mississippi: HB559

The House Bill removing the repealer on the Check Cashing industry was passed out of the Banking and Finance Committee today.  There is a strong possibility that it will be taken up on the floor of the House of Representatives tomorrow (Wednesday). We need to ask Legislators to please vote to pass the bill exactly as it came out of committee with NO MENDMENTS!

Please take a moment to contact YOUR STATE REPRESENTATIVE and convey this message.  You may click on the link below to find the phone number for your Representative.  Be ure to call them at the Capitol Office and not their home phone.

Sample Script:
May I please speak to or leave a message for Representative XYZ?  This is Jane Doe from Quick Cash in Corinth, Mississippi.  I’d like to ask him to please support HB559 exactly as it passed out of committee – with no amendments.  Please ask him to call me if he has any questions concerning the bill.  (Be sure to leave your name and phone number)

    Update from Mississippi Financial Service Centers:
    The House Bill removing the repealer on the Check Cashing industry was expected to be taken up on the floor of the House of Representatives today. However, due to some conflicts on the calendar, we have been told that a floor vote on this bill will likely take place tomorrow instead (Thursday).

    So, if you were unable to place a call to your legislators this morning, there is still time. Please follow the same instructions below and go ahead and make that call this afternoon, or in the morning at the latest. We have strong support from House members, but a word from voters at home is always the most effective resource we have. Please take just a few minutes to place a call. We need to ask Legislators to please vote to pass the bill exactly as it came out of committee with NO AMENDMENTS!

    LEGISLATIVE UPDATE! January 24, 2013

    House Bill 559, which removes the repealer from the Check Cashers authorization was passed on the floor of the House of Representatives today by a vote of 86 for, 21 opposed and 8 not voting!

    This is an exciting victory for our industry and we want to thank everyone that called your Representative. This is truly what makes the difference!
    We will now move over to the Senate side, so please watch for emails with suggested next steps.

    Again, thanks to all those who work so hard for us on the ground at the Capitol, especially our association lobbyist Irb Benjamin. And, thanks again to all of you who took the time to make a call to your local legislator!
