State Rep. David Leland (D-Columbus) today issued the following statement after House agreed to Senate changes on House Bill 123, a bipartisan plan to enact consumer protections and crack down on predatory payday lenders. The bill now heads to the governor to be signed into law.

“Amid months of rumors, speculation and corruption that have rocked the Statehouse, I can say that this reform is the one good thing to come out of the Rosenberger scandal. The sad reality is we wouldn't be having this discussion about protecting consumers today if not for the FBI investigation into the Cliff Rosenberger scandal.”
