November 9, 2015  Lea Masiello

Our November speaker, Lea Masiello, from the League of Women Voters (LWV),  discussed issues related to Pay Day Loans, an important Democratic platform in the last election. Lea is the chair of the Austin Area LWV’s Pay Day and Auto Title Loan Study, particularly the impact of these practices on low-income borrowers. The study concluded that alternatives to such loans should be supported and additional regulations should be adopted to safeguard consumers. For more information, see the Texas League of Women Voters website.
