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.
