Alabama Payday Loan Database Still on Hold – WTVY


MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) — A database to track payday loans in Alabama remains on hold because of a court fight.

The Montgomery Advertiser reports the system isn’t being implemented while the loan industry tries to block it.

The database is aimed at improving enforcement of a $500 limit on the amount of payday loans a person can have. But payday lenders sued Alabama’s Banking Department to block creation of the system last year.

A judge in Montgomery ruled against the industry in August and the industry appealed.

Banking Department attorney Elizabeth Bressler says the state hopes to have a final decision soon.

The state signed a contract with a Florida company to build the database, and legislators approve the deal earlier this month. But the work remains on hold because of the litigation.
