Comments to OCC on Overdraft and Bank Payday Loans

August 9, 2011
Overdraft Loans
Comment Letter

CRL supports the principles laid out in the OCC's proposed guidance on overdraft and bank payday loans, but hopes the OCC will dramatically strengthen its guidance to address existing problems and to avoid inadverdently entrenching abuses. Among our recommendations, CRL urges the OCC to act quickly and decisively to stop payday lending before it becomes pervasive among banks. CRL also urges the agency to stop its banks from posting transactions in order from highest to lowest to increase overdraft fees.
