Rent to Own Update

Rent to Own.png

During the last week of the legislative session, a proposal which undermines the Wisconsin Consumer act passed the State Assembly on a party-line vote. Rent-to-own stores would face fewer regulations in Wisconsin. 

RTO businesses would no longer have to disclose interest rates to consumers, allowing more opportunities to exploit common targets such as military families, who move frequently and thus have a harder time seeking recourse through the courts. During a public hearing on this bill in 2012, it was estimated that exempting the RTO industry from the Consumer Act would expand their presence in our state from 38 stores to more than 300 stores.

As a strong advocate for consumer protection, I am deeply concerned about the progression of this bill and am working tirelessly with my colleagues in the Senate to ensure this bill does not become law.
