A large coalition of consumer advocacy, non-profit and religious groups is calling on state legislators to scrap a controversial short-term lending bill.

The legislation passed through the state Senate and now awaits a hearing in a house committee.

While some lawmakers say the proposal gives more options to Hoosiers with bad credit, opponents say it will only worsen their financial situations.
