SUMMARY AS INTRODUCED:

Open-end credit plan loans. Establishes requirements for open-end credit plan loans, which are revolving loans made under an open-end credit or similar plan under which a finance charge is imposed only if the obligor fails to repay the loan in full prior to the next billing date, which must be at least 25 days after the date the agreement is entered into and at least 25 days after the prior billing date. Persons making open-end credit plan loans are required to be licensed by the State Corporation Commission and are required to post a bond or equivalent instrument approved by the Commission. A violation of the measure is a prohibited practice under the Consumer Protection Act. The existing provision authorizing certain open-end loans to be at unlimited interest rates is limited to loans for the sole purpose of financing the bona fide purchase price of goods to be used for personal, family, or household purposes.
