Michigan Senate passes bill on high-interest payday loans

The Michigan Senate yesterday passed bills to cap interest rates on quick-cash loans at 36% annually. Currently, Michigan allows short-term, high-interest cash advance loans that come due on the borrower’s next payday, with an annual interest rate of up to 391%. Supporters say that the bills, if signed into law, would protect people from getting into cycles of debt. Michigan Bridge has the story.
