Legislative Alert: Urge Your Representatives to Support Legislation Limiting Credit Checks

URGE MEMBERS OF THE HOUSE TO SUPPORT HB 175/SB 312 - LIMITING CREDIT CHECKS LEGISLATION
 
This week, the House Economic Matters Committee is scheduled to vote on important legislation which would limit employers' use of credit checks in making hiring and other employment-related decisions. This bill is important because it affects many low-income Marylanders. The PJC supports this bill.
 
Due to the economic recession, people find themselves unemployed, behind on payments and unable to find a new job because of their credit score.  This practice has created a vicious cycle of joblessness.

PLEASE TELL YOUR REPRESENTATIVES TO SUPPORT HB 175 – CLICK HERE TO CONTACT MEMBERS OF THE HOUSE ECONOMIC MATTERS COMMITTEE.
