Arkansans Against Abusive Payday Lending (AAAPL) held a news conference July 16, 2008, to release a report evaluating payday lenders’ compliance with Arkansas Attorney General Dustin McDaniel’s March 2008 order to stop making loans. The report found that 101 of 156 lenders have complied with McDaniel’s order and stopped making loans while the remaining 55 remain open in defiance of the order. AAAPL Chairman Michael Rowett, Research and Communications Manager for Southern Good Faith Fund’s Public Policy program, presented the report findings at the news conference, which was covered extensively by central Arkansas media.
