Uneasy Money: An Observer Panel On Reforming Texas’ Payday and Auto-Title Loan Industry

A mere four days before the Texas Senate passed a reform bill that would ultimately shut down most of the payday and title lending stores in Texas, Texas Observer Staff Writer Forrest Wilder hosted a public panel on reforming Texas’ payday loan industry. Panelists included State Rep. Mike Villareal, Texas Appleseed Senior Policy Analyst Ann Baddour, Texas Impact Executive Director Bee Moorhead, Austin City Councilman Bill Spelman and Northeast Baptist Church Pastor Chad Chaddick.

If you missed the panel in person, you’re in luck. The video playlist above contains the entire panel including a Q&A session with those in attendance toward the end.
