Federal Charter: H.R. 6139

We urge you to send your congressional members a letter of opposition to federal charter legislation by clicking the "Take Action" icon below.

The National Pawnbrokers Association opposes any legislation that grants authority to the federal government to charter, regulate, supervise and examine non-depositary providers of credit services and products to consumers. These responsibilities have traditionally been managed by the states. The NPA has been monitoring, H.R. 6139, which authorizes the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency to grant “federal charters” to non-depository providers of financial services who meet fairly exclusive requirements.

As a 4th generation owner of a 152 year old pawnshop in Philadelphia, I find this to be a slap in the face.
