Sample letter to your representatives in Congress
As your constituent, I am asking you to reject the Disapproving compliance to Equal Credit Opportunity Act - the attempt to repeal the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau's 2013 guidance protecting minorities from discrimination when taking out a car loan through a car dealer.
There is no legitimate reason to exempt indirect lenders from being held responsible under the Equal Credit Opportunity Act
This became defunct on May 21, 2018
President Trump signed this repeal into law on May 21, 2018. Therefore, this letter as it is written will have no effect. The only way to reinstate this protection would be for Congress to enact a law requiring it - meaning you can write to your representatives requesting they work to pass such a law.
