August 21, 2008

Today the entire staff of the Center for Responsible Lending joins the nation in mourning the passing of Representative Stephanie Tubbs Jones.  Rep. Tubbs Jones was a courageous and effective advocate on many vital issues, including predatory lending.  She recognized the terrible harm caused by reckless and unethical lending practices, and she stood up for more stringent protections for borrowers against abusive loans.  With the loss of Rep. Tubbs Jones, our country is losing one of the strongest voices speaking out for economic opportunity for all.  We will miss her.
