play

Lawmakers wrapped up the 2022 legislative session last week, leaving hundreds of bills dead for the year. 

In fact, less than a quarter of the bills filed this session crossed the finish line. The topics could, and in some cases certainly will, come back next year. 

Here are some of the bills that didn’t make it this legislative session. 

Abortion ban

At least four abortion-related bills were filed this legislative session, including House Bill 1282 from Rep. Curt Nisly, R-Milford, which would have banned abortions, and Senate Bill 309 from Sen. Erin Houchin, R-Salem, which would have required the General Assembly to meet to consider legislation if the Supreme Court rules on abortion-related matters in other states in a way that would allow Indiana lawmakers to further restrict abortions. 

Neither of those bills ever received a committee hearing or vote.

The majority of Republican lawmakers sent a letter to Gov. Eric Holcomb asking him to call a taxpayer-funded special legislative session if parts of Roe v. Wade are overturned by the U.S. Supreme Court. 

The governor did sign House Bill 1217 in an attempt to limit “coerced” abortions.

Gender-affirming care for minors

At least half a dozen bills were filed at the start of the 2022 legislative session that would impact transgender Hoosiers, but most never made it out of committee. 

Among those that died was Senate Bill 34 from Sen. Dennis Kruse, R-Auburn, which would have banned gender affirming surgeries and other care on minors, regardless of if their parent approved. 

Likewise, a bill from Rep. Bruce Broders, R-Jasonville, that would have prevented transgender Hoosiers from using a restroom that corresponded with their gender identity, also never made it out of committee. 

Lawmakers did pass House Bill 1041, which would prohibit transgender girls from playing girls sports in K-12 schools.

Adult businesses

A bill to curb where adult businesses can set up shop didn’t make it out of committee this year despite bipartisan support, but its author says he hopes to bring it back next year. 

The bill from Rep. Mike Speedy, R-Indianapolis, would have strengthened the state’s regulation of sexually oriented businesses, forbidding them from opening within 1,000 feet of schools, playgrounds and businesses that primarily cater to children. 

It was in direct response to issues in Indianapolis, where Hustler Hollywood and the Lion’s Den were able to open next to children entertainment businesses on the north and south side, respectively. 

HB 1122 did not get a hearing in the Senate Judiciary Committee due to concerns from Sen. Liz Brown, R-Fort Wayne, who chairs the committee. The bill would be setting zoning laws for adult businesses for the entire state, she argued. 

Speedy was initially going to try to place the language into another bill toward the end of the session but was unable to do so. He told the IndyStar he will bring the legislation back next year.

Business equipment tax cuts

At the start of the legislative session, House Republicans introduced a massive tax cut package that included cuts to business equipment and machinery taxes, supported by Holcomb. 

Parts of the tax package were still in the final version of House Bill 1002 released and passed on the final day of session, but the provision reducing equipment taxes was nixed after pushback from both Republicans in the Senate and local governments who rely on those taxes for operations.

The proposal could come back next session, though, as lawmakers craft the two-year budget. 

Loan sharking

A bill that would have enabled lenders to offer a higher interest loan that the state currently would classify as felony loan sharking, passed the Senate but died after not receiving a House committee hearing in the second half of session.

Under Senate Bill 352, lenders could have charged an interest rate of 36% on most loans up to $2,500, plus an additional 13% monthly maintenance fee, substantially driving up total interest. Supporters say the bill created a method to assist Hoosiers who need money while also helping them build their credit back up, instead of forcing them to rely solely on controversial payday loans. Opponents, though, said the excess fees are dangerous, nor does the legislation prohibit problematic payday lending.

Book banning in schools and libraries

Senate Bill 17 would have removed a protection for K-12 schools and public libraries from the state’s law against distributing so-called “harmful material” to minors. Violating the law is a Level 6 Felony. Schools and libraries are among the entities with an automatic defense.

Supporters of the bill said it was an important step to protect children from accessing pornographic material, but opponents questioned the types of material that actually would be targeted in public schools and libraries. They called it a form of censorship that will be used to ban books that certain social conservatives don’t like — particularly books with sexually explicit scenes or those centered on LGBTQ experiences.

Similar legislation was attempted last year but failed. This year, the idea gained steam as part of a slate of legislation targeting conservative social issues but was ultimately derailed by the legislative process.

It passed the Senate on Feb. 1 but didn’t get a hearing in the House. The House did pass similar language in House Bill 1134, but the Senate stripped the provision from that bill. Lawmakers tried to amend into related legislation in the final hours of the legislative session but the Senate killed the “Christmas tree” bill it was added to over concerns about how many unrelated provisions were tacked onto one piece of legislation.

‘CRT’-inspired bills

Indiana lawmakers filed a number of bills inspired by the critical race theory debate that has been raging at school boards around the country. Two of them received hearings but, in the end, the Senate killed both.

Senate Bill 167 and House Bill 1134 would have, among a long list of things, prohibited public K-12 schools from teaching students that “any sex, race, ethnicity, religion, color, national origin, or political affiliation” is inherently superior, inferior, racist, sexist, oppressive. They also sought to ban teaching that any individual should feel “discomfort, guilt, anguish, responsibility or any other form of psychological distress” on account of those same characteristics or that meritocracy was created by one group to oppress another.

SB 167 received a lengthy hearing Jan. 5 and Senate Republicans killed it Jan. 14 after its author suggested teachers be neutral on topics such as Nazism. 

HB 1134 passed the House Jan. 25 but was somewhat watered down in the Senate. After hours of closed-door discussions, Senate Republicans killed the bill on Feb. 28. Senate President Pro Tempore Rodric Bray, R-Martinsville, said some members of the caucus thought the watered-down version didn’t go far enough and others thought the idea itself was bad policy. 

Partisan school boards

Several proposals would have shifted Indiana’s currently non-partisan school board races to partisan ones, either by allowing or requiring candidates to declare their affiliation with a political party. 

Only one of those, House Bill 1182, received a hearing. It would have required candidates to declare with a party. During a committee hearing Jan. 11, the bill was opposed by all the state’s major education-related groups and many current school board members, who feared it would inject too much politics in local schools. 

It was never called back for a vote. 

Resident tuition for ‘dreamers’

Many states allow undocumented students to receive in-state tuition at public colleges and universities, provided they graduate from a high school in that state. Bills to add Indiana to that list have been filed for the last couple of years, but they’ve failed to gain traction during the current legislative session. 

The Senate education committee heard one of the bills but never took a vote on the issue.

Marijuana reform

More than a dozen bills filed at the start of the legislative session would have overhauled marijuana use, whether through partial decriminalization, medical use or legalization, died without even receiving a committee hearing or vote. 

Several of the dead bills proposed similar actions like Senate Bill 414 written by Sen. David Niezgodski, D-South Bend, and Sen. Eddie Melton, D-Gary, and House Bill 1311 written by Rep. Cindy Ziemke, R-Batesville. 

Both bills would have legalized and set up procedures for cannabis production and sale. 

Additional dead bills would have established medical marijuana or cannabis programs, so a person with a qualifying medical condition as determined by their physician can use the drug.

IndyGo dedicated bus lanes

A bill seeking to prevent IndyGo from establishing new dedicated bus lanes outside Mile Square in downtown Indianapolis, which would derail the public transit agency’s planned Blue Line, never got a hearing in the Senate.

Lawmakers behind the bill are concerned about what taking out general travel lanes would do to traffic and business activity on Washington Street, one of the city’s few east-west corridors.

Compensating landowners for eminent domain

When local governments want to build a new highway or a road, they often must acquire property owned by private owners through eminent domain. Currently, they must only pay at least the appraised market value of the property, although that can be — and often is — contested by the property owner through legal settlement or litigation. 

Senate Bill 29 would have raised the compensation owned to those property owners for condemnation — or the taking of their property — to 120% of the appraised market value. It passed out of the Senate by a vote of 40-7 on Jan. 24 but failed to gain a hearing in the House and is dead. 

Advocates of the bill, including the Indiana Farm Bureau, say it would have advanced property rights of landowners who deserve fairer compensation for the taking of their land. But its opponents worried it would increase the cost of building critical public infrastructure.

Affordable housing development tax credits

Riding on bipartisan support, Senate Bill 262, which would have created a statewide affordable housing tax credit system, passed out of the Senate unanimously on Jan. 24 but failed to advance in the House. 

A similar bill incentivizing affordable housing development had previously passed in the Senate in 2020, but also failed in the House. 

Indiana has a severe lack of affordable housing, advocates say, and the bill would funnel federal tax credits to affordable housing developers seeking to develop units for low-income renters. With broad-based support from both the association representing landlords and tenant advocates, the bill was touted as a much-needed first step to fixing the state’s housing affordability crisis.

Tenants’ habitability enforcement bill

An Indiana bill that would have put the state in step with 45 other states by implementing tenants’ rights to enforce basic habitability standards in their rental homes was effectively killed in a Senate committee. 

Carried by Senate Democrat Fady Qaddoura, D-Indianapolis, with Sen. Greg Walker, R-Columbus, and Sen. Shelli Yoder, D-Bloomington, Senate Bill 230 would have given tenants the right to withhold rent if their landlord fails to make necessary housing repairs and the right to make the repairs themselves and deduct the cost from the next rental payment, if the landlord fails to do so within 30 days. 

It received a hearing on Jan. 24 only for the local government committee to vote by consent to convert the bill into a summer study session, putting an end to its chances of advancing this year.

Financial breaks for veterans

Several bills that would have offered financial breaks to Hoosier veterans stalled during session.

Senate Bill 217, House Bill 1098 and House Bill 1388 would have given all children of disabled veterans free in-state tuition, a provision that was in place in Indiana law until 2011 and still applied to the children of those who served prior to 2011.

Likewise, multiple bills that would have given veterans property tax cuts failed to advance, such as House Bill 1198. Already older or disabled Hoosiers veterans can qualify for a property tax break if their house is worth $200,000 or less. This bill would remove the assessed value cap, enabling more to qualify. All of those bills never even made it past the first half of session.

Likewise, a bill requiring the Indiana war memorials commission to propose a global war on terrorism monument passed the House, but never received a vote in a Senate committee. 

Making some speeding a misdemeanor

A bill that sought to codify the amount of speeding that qualifies as a misdemeanor died in the Senate.

Under current law, driving above the posted speed limit or “at a speed greater than is reasonable and prudent under the conditions” can result in a citation. And in a separate statute, driving “recklessly” and at an “unreasonably high rate of speed” that endangers others can result in a Class C misdemeanor.

That means that currently, two drivers could both be going the same speed over the limit, but one might get a ticket, and the other might get a record. 

Senate Bill 168 proposed to standardize the misdemeanor threshold at 24 mph above the speed limit. It never got a committee hearing.

Vulnerable Road Users

A Senate bill sought to enact criminal penalties for drivers that strike and injure or kill a “vulnerable road user,” such as a pedestrian or cyclist, while committing a traffic offense.

Under current law, a driver must be committing another criminal offense, such as driving under the influence, to be held criminally responsible for hitting and injuring or killing someone on the road.

Eleven states have such laws, which have drawn attention as fatal car crashes have been on the rise since the pandemic. Senate Bill 173 never got a hearing.

Road funding

A bill that sought to change the way state road funding is distributed to localities died in the House.

Currently, funding for road work is distributed according to several factors, including population and the number of center-line road miles. But this formula, critics argue, doesn’t account for metropolitan areas that have wide roads with several lanes.

House Bill 1278 proposed changing the distribution to adhere to the number of vehicle miles traveled in a municipality. It didn’t get a committee hearing.

Speed cameras

A Senate bill seeking to establish a pilot program using speed cameras in highway work zones failed to meet the second-reading deadline in the House and is now dead.

Senate Bill 179, authored by Sen. Jon Ford, R-Terre Haute, catches offenders speeding 11 mph or more over the speed limit in work zones while workers are present. Speed cameras capture pictures of the driver’s license plate, then mails them a fine — a warning for the first offense, $75 for the second and $150 for the third. There is an appeals process if the owner of the vehicle was not the driver.

Lawmakers have attempted similar legislation for several years; this is the furthest a bill has gotten.

Turn signals

A Senate bill seeking to slim down the state’s statutes on turn signal compliance died in the House.

Senate Bill 124 proposed getting rid of the statute that requires a turn signal 200 feet before making a turn or changing lanes, or 300 feet on a highway. A separate statute that simply says drivers must use turn signals “before” making the movement remains intact. The bill’s author, Sen. Aaron Freeman, R-Indianapolis, argued the 200-foot rule is unreasonable for many urban areas and can lead to arbitrary or preemptory traffic stops.

The confusion over whether the bill proposed getting rid of turn signals completely sparked an initial outcry on social media and caught the attention of national media.

Passenger Rail

The Senate passed a bill seeking to establish a commission that would study and advocate for the expansion of passenger rail in Indiana, but it failed to get a hearing in the House.

Though the Senate has demonstrated over the years a disinterest in passenger rail, as one senator put it during a hearing, Republican committee chairman Michael Crider said he chose to hear the bill because of the potential influx of federal funding from the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act. Indiana can compete for $12 billion of federal-state partnership grants available to bolster or establish inter-city rail service.

But since the House committee deadline has passed, the bill is dead.

Concerns with Marion County Democratic leader

Lawmakers nixed language from an elections-related bill that would have forced the chair of the Marion County Democratic Party to resign her chairmanship or tap out of the race for Marion County clerk.

The language split Democrats and was the latest example of the inner-party rift in Indianapolis. 

Some Marion County Democrats successfully added on language to the Republican-authored Senate Bill 328, forbidding the chair of a Marion County political party from holding or seeking elected office. Local Democratic party chair Kate Sweeney Bell is running for Marion County clerk.

But Democrats selected to the conference committee for bill, Sen. J.D. Ford of Indianapolis and Rep. Tonya Pfaff of Terre Haute, agreed to remove the language.

Marion County Sheriff spending

A Senate bill that would have restricted the Marion County Sheriff Office’s ability to spend money from its commissary fund failed to receive a hearing in the House.

Senate Bill 307 would have required the department to present a quarterly update regarding purchases out of the fund. It passed the Senate on Jan. 27 by a 35-11 vote.

Democrats voiced concern against the bill, which applied only to Marion County. Sheriff Kerry Forestal told lawmakers that his office already delivers a report every six months for the city-county council detailing spending from that fund.

Digital billboard in Marion County

The Marion County Fairgrounds won’t be getting a new digital billboard sanctioned through a Senate bill that failed to make it through the House. 

SB 142, sponsored by Indianapolis Republican Sen. Jack Sandlin, managed to pass  the Senate on Jan. 31 — but it failed to get a hearing in the House after being referred to the Committee on Local Government on Feb. 7. 

The ‘tampon tax’

A proposal to exempt feminine hygiene products from taxation died in the Senate. 

Senate Bill 169, filed by Bloomington Democrat Rep. Shelli Yoder, never received a committee hearing or vote. 

County hospital secrecy

Millions of dollars in federal nursing home spending will remain shrouded in secrecy after lawmakers scrapped Senate Bill 405.

Introduced by Sen. Fady Qaddoura, D-Indianapolis, the measure would have forced county hospitals to disclose how much they pay their executives and how much money they divert from their nursing homes. It also would have required the Indiana Department of Health to establish new quality metrics for nursing homes and it would have prohibited retaliation against whistleblowers who expose wrongdoing at health facilities.

The bill had been scheduled for a hearing Jan. 26, but Senate Health & Provider Services Committee Chairman Ed Charbonneau, R-Valparaiso, removed it from the schedule at the last minute with little explanation. 

Regulation of fireworks

A bill that would have allowed municipalities to restrict consumer fireworks for eight days surrounding the July 4 holiday died in committee.

House Bill 1053 from Rep. Donna Schaibley, R-Carmel, would have allowed municipalities to restrict fireworks use on June 29, June 30, July 1, July 2 and July 6-9. Current law prohibits municipalities from adopting such an ordinance restricting fireworks on those days. 

Schaibley said the bill was pulled out of concern over a potential drop in the 5% public safety fee that is tacked onto fireworks sales. Part of that fee funds regional training for firefighters. 

Discrimination in housing appraisals 

House Bill 1326 never stood a chance. Filed by Democratic Rep. Cherrish Pryor of Indianapolis, the bill sought to address discrimination in home appraisals and lending. 

It prohibits the use of an applicant’s inherent characteristics — their race, color, religion, sex, disability, familial status, national origin — and their neighborhood demographics as a basis for establishing terms and conditions on residential real estate transactions, among other things.

But, the bill was never added to the agenda of the House’s Financial Institutions and Insurance Committee for discussion, ensuring its death.

Being in a poor financial situation can be very stressful. To cover up all your expenses for housing, food, transportation, health care, and other necessary costs can get very challenging. Many occasions can lead to this problem. Having a hard time at work and leaving, earning so little money from social security, or even not being able to find a job are very common problems in these times.

Plus, having additional expenses can eat up your budget. For example when your car breaks down, or you require surgery. There are many ways that you can cover that up, but sometimes your options might be limited. Banks can sometimes be hard to work with, and they might not even be helpful. Another way that you can access lending companies is by using peer-to-peer loans. These loans can be completed in an extremely short time, compared to traditional loans from banking lending.

As a great substitute, you can borrow money not just because you need it fast, but also if you have a very bad credit score. In that case, banks won’t even accept your loan request and the only loan available left to you is from these types of lending platforms.

It’s hard to come by a good loan platform right now, but we did a thorough research and found a perfect option for you – MoneyMutual Today, in this MoneyMutual review we will talk about the company, and how they provide great services to the clients.

What is MoneyMutual?

MoneyMutual is a website that can help both lenders and borrowers. They have a so-called peer to peer platform that connects over 60 unique lenders via lending networks and every individual that seeks for a short-term loan. So, this company acts like a middleman who provides you with loans in a quick and easy way. These loans can be called as a payday, installment, bad credit, or others. 

To apply for a loan, you have to go on their website and fill out the necessary forms. You don’t have direct access to the lenders immediately. Instead, MoneyMutual sends all your information for you to the lenders individually. Then, whoever wants to offer you a loan that you requested, you will get an offer from different lenders.

This is a much easier approach for a loan request because if you need to apply for more than 60 different lenders one by one, you will lose a lot of time. Plus, you will get the best offer available with almost no effort.

Apart from that, people who have bad credit scores can benefit from this company the most. If they are not able to pay their credits on time, or other factors that impact their score are welcomed to use MoneyMutual’s services.

⇒ Visit the Official Website of MoneyMutual

This company has existed for more than 10 years now, and it became popular very quickly. They were aware of the economic crisis that has impacted many people with the rise of automation and artificial intelligence. Later, the pandemic appeared, and even more people were in need of services like theirs.

What makes MoneyMutual a great company is being part of an organization called Online Lenders Alliance. To be a part of this alliance, you have to follow strict rules that need to be applied to the loans to prevent any abuse. Both the borrowers and lenders are susceptible to scams or no paybacks. To ensure both sides, this company is providing them with righteous and trustable services.

They have helped more than 2,000,000 customers. With providing a loan in a period as short as 24 hours, users were satisfied with both the speed and ease of receiving a loan offer.

Pros and Cons

In this section, we are going to enlist the advantages and disadvantages when using the services from MoneyMutual. We think that generally, they did a great job to satisfy both sides equally. But, in some perspectives, the services might not be perfect.

Pros

  • To use MoneyMutual’s services, you don’t have to pay anything

  • The procedure to apply for a loan is very simple and easy

  • The loan offers usually will arrive in about 24 hours, which is relatively short

  • When you accept the offer, funding is very fast 

  • Very educational website

  • Part of the Online Leaders Alliance

  • Access to a network of over 60 different lenders

Cons

  • Not every lending company can offer you a loan in your state

  • After you accept an offer, this company isn’t responsible for the safety

How Does MoneyMutual Work?

As we mentioned before, this company is a middleman, or an intermediary to the loans. So, the request that you make to them, is sent to other individual companies to process it and potentially send you an offer. This service isn’t necessarily free, because the lending companies are charged with a fee for their service. So, technically you’re not paying fees directly to MoneyMutual, but to the lender that is charged in advance.

They use a very convenient and easy to use form that you need to fill out in order to apply for a loan. After you complete the application, an automatic process is filtering out all the available lenders and sending your request to the ones who could commit that particular transaction.

Another thing that is important to know is that all lenders are partially restricted when it comes to the annual percentage rate, or APR value. This is a rate of a charge which consists of the interest rate plus the extra fees for the service. So, that range could vary from 5.99% to 24.99%. Lenders are not allowed to make an offer in higher or lower APR from this range.

The probability of your loan being accepted is quite high, considering that there are more than 60 individual lenders available. However, there are few requirements that you need to satisfy to be able to receive a loan. We are going to discuss that in the next sections in this MoneyMutual review.

Before fully committing to use the service from this company, you should first consider reading their terms and conditions carefully. If you don’t want to be bound to the terms, you may not access the site.

Services Provided by MoneyMutual

MoneyMutual offers the option to connect you to different loan providers, who also offer different loan types. In regard to these loan types, we must add that the interest rates are not ideal. Nevertheless, these loans can come in handy for example in paying bills or getting groceries before payday. Depending on your needs, you have to choose which type of loan is most suitable for you.

We have to mention that most of the lenders don’t check your credit score. With that, the interest rates are kind of average for the specific loan. We mentioned that they are usually high. If you are in a situation where your credit score is low, the companies that don’t check your score will usually make you a better offer. 

However, some companies might perform a soft credit pull on you. In that case, if you keep your score high, companies will offer you loans with lower interest rates. But, if your score is not in the acceptable ranges (usually under 600), companies might not have an offer for you.

Payday loans are one of the most common loans that are offered from these types of lenders. If you receive a payday loan, you have to return it when your next paycheck arrives. Because of that, lenders usually require a date when the next designated payday is. 

A good reason why to use this loan if you have any other bill that can accrue a late fee and you need to pay it sooner. Remember that the APR might be very high and this usually is an expensive way to borrow money. But if you play your cards smart and pay the loan on your next payday, you will escape the cycle of being in debt. Take note that payday loans offer only a small amount (about a few hundred dollars) because they need to be repaid in a very short time.

To understand the installment loan better, you can count it as a payday loan but paid in a few partitions. If we compare the interest rates, usually they are lower in the installment loans. But, you have to discipline yourself to pay the planned amount on time. If you miss out on the date of the payback, the fees might increase. However, some lenders are giving the customers a grace period and they don’t charge them in that time.

These types of loans usually last from 3 to 12 months. Because they are repaid for a longer period, you can usually lend more money. So, if you for example want to buy a car, this type of loan is perfect for you. The amount that can be borrowed from installment loans can go up to $5,000. 

Both of the loans above can be considered as bad credit loans. This is a great opportunity if your requests from a bank loan are getting rejected. Though, the interest rates could rise in these lower eligibility options. It’s not always the case because the lenders are checking other factors such as employment history, bank account balance, and income. This information is requested from MoneyMutual when requesting for a loan.

You can associate the cash advance with a payday loan. They are another way to borrow a certain amount of money even if you have a credit existent on your credit card. This is another way to interpret the credit limit in a bank account. 

Via MoneyMutual services, you can connect with lenders that offer cash advances. As with all others, the interest rates are significantly higher. Yet, they might be a great option if you need to make another payment which isn’t related to your credit card.

Eligibility Criteria 

To successfully receive a loan, you need to satisfy a few criteria that MoneyMutual sets up. However, that can’t be a rule that lenders will respond to you with an offer because they have an additional criteria specific to their service. But, usually if you check off the criteria from MoneyMutual, the chances that you will receive an offer are highly likely. 

First off, you need to be a U.S. resident older than 18 years old to be eligible for any kind of loan. Another important factor is that you need to provide them with proof of a regular source of income. You have to also have a valid checking account so that the lender could send you the money successfully.

There are specific requirements for the source of income. You can’t apply for a loan if you receive less than $800 per month. No matter where you get the financial resources (regular job, pension, social security, or disability benefits), they need to be specified. 

Some lenders require contact information about the person who is responsible for your income (employer or institution that provides you the money). This information also needs to be provided in the loan request process. Although MoneyMutual doesn’t have the need to contact the employer, the potential lender’s procedure might include contacting him.

The Requesting Process

If you decide that you want to request a loan from MoneyMutual, you need to go through a short requesting process which requires several information about you and your income. We are going to go through all the steps, so stick with us to find them out.

First, you have to choose in which state you want to receive the loan, or where you are located. Then, information about you like name and email are required. A good feature that MoneyMutual has is receiving an update for a loan offer on your phone. So, if you want them to contact you via your phone number, you have an option to enter it.

Next, the essential information needs to be provided like your source of income and your address. They ask you if you own the place you’re living in for lenders that consider applying for a mortgage. Providing a proof of your income is a must, so be prepared to include that.

Information about your bank account is essential and how often funds are transferred to it. Another important thing to enter is the date of your payday loan (or more). Take note that sometimes you have to check on with your bank to confirm the payments later for the loan.

You have to enter the employer’s name and other contact information like we said before, because lenders usually contact them before proceeding with the approval of your request. To identify yourself on the right way, you need to enter your ID number or driver’s license number and state information. Lastly, to successfully receive your money (if you accept them later), the lender requires a full bank routing number and account number.

Because this procedure is automated from Money Mutual, it takes only minutes to contact all the lenders available at the moment. Another feature on their website is that before you start with filling out the form, the number of lenders online is shown. We checked on it a few times, and the numbers were way more than 60.

After the lenders receive the information, the time to process your request depends on many factors. You might receive a response very shortly if any of the lenders are going to review your request immediately. Still, the average time from requesting a loan to receiving an offer is usually about 24 hours. Some lenders only work on the weekdays, so if you request the loan on the weekend, you might need to wait a little bit longer.

There is no guarantee that you’ll get any loan offers. But, if your income looks good, you will probably receive several offers. The interest rates can vary significantly depending on the lender, so choose wisely.

Costs and Fees of MoneyMutual’s Services

If you were expecting that you need to pay to use the MoneyMutual’s service, you’re wrong. To request a loan you don’t have to pay anything. Still, this company is making money from charging the lenders with small fees.

But, this doesn’t look like you’re gonna end up saving some huge money because you indirectly pay for the services from MoneyMutual. They usually charge based on how much you borrow. For example, let’s say that they charge 15% of the total amount of the loan. If your loan is $1,000, you will have to pay $150 for the lending services. 

So, the expenses sum up quite high. Despite the interest rate from the lenders, you need to expect additional charges from them too. The three values (interest rate, lender fees, middleman fees) can be shown as an annual percentage rate, or APR.

Interest rate is the amount of money that the lender is charging from the lending service. This value is shown as a percentage, and if you are a borrower, you need to seek the lowest interest rate. Usually, banks offer personal loan rates up to 25%, depending on your credit score. But, online lenders can increase that percentage up to 36%. That number is actually a cap in many states and the loans can’t have higher interest rates than that.

The APR is a more complex number when compared to the interest rate. It is usually higher than the interest rate, depending on the lender and MoneyMutual’s fees. Firstly, you have to add the administrative fees to the interest rate, and then divide them by the loan amount. Next, you have to divide by the total number of days in the loan term and multiply by 365. That’s calculated because APR is an annual rate, so you have to count it per year. When you get the final number, you just have to multiply it again by 100 to convert it to a percentage.

An average payday loan with a 15% fee has about 400% of APR. That is relatively high when compared to credit card APRs. To prevent lenders from bumping up these numbers higher, many states cap the percentage rates.

Why Do We Choose MoneyMutual as an Online Loan Platform?

Using MoneyMutual’s services makes the process from the request to receiving the loan very simple. They act as a middleman that connects you to many different lending companies that offer loans. This is a great service that you can achieve by yourself. Sending more than 60 requests to lending companies individually is impossible.

Why would you need to send so many requests? Well, your situation is varying depending on many factors. Lenders don’t usually give you a great interest rate, and you have to search for several different lenders to filter out your best options. With having so many offers available, you can choose the loan with the lowest interest rate without any effort.

Another big thing that made us choose this platform is that it is totally free to use. Plus, having a risk from a scam is another concern for many people, which is not the case with the lending network that MoneyMutual is connected with.

If you are in need of loan service, you firstly have to educate yourself. You have the option to do that by going on their website and in their Resources section, you can learn everything about the loans, fees, and more. They want to teach the customers that many untrustworthy lenders are out there that could potentially increase the fees and rates to the maximum. Lately, many lending companies have appeared on the market because of the lack of finances for many people.

In very few cases, attempts for a scam could appear when you try to lend money from an untrusted company. You could spot the signs by smartly looking at the instructions that they give you. You can’t pay some fees to the lender in advance to fund your loan. These are companies that are excluded from the MoneyMutual’s list of lenders.

Plus, the Online Lenders Alliance isn’t allowing MoneyMutual to work with lenders that are willing to scam borrowers. Backed up with 256-bit encryption, their security is at its highest point. This is an association that monitors every bad lender and notifies the members that the particular lender isn’t trustworthy. More than 2,000,000 satisfied customers are showing that they are indeed a great company to work with.

How Can MoneyMutual Improve Its Services

MoneyMutual’s platform is a good competitor to many other companies. But, even in one of the greatest companies some disadvantages are present. We will mention them, even though we think that this platform is highly optimized for both borrowers and lenders.

Firstly, when you accept the loan, you are being redirected to the lender’s side. That means that the help from MoneyMutual’s service is coming to an end. But, the company can’t do anything anyway because it acts only like a middleman. They did as much as they could, and provided services from one of the safest lenders.

You have to be aware that after you register or submit personally identifiable information to the website, you are allowing them to use that information with third parties. So, if you’re searching for a loan, you might get calls and emails from different lenders. This could be an annoying thing, but you can always unsubscribe. A guide on how to unsubscribe to all the lenders is available on their website.

FAQs About MoneyMutual Bad Credit Loans 

Q1. Is MoneyMutual a safe platform?

Q2. Can I request a loan if I have a bad credit score?

Most lenders don’t require your credit score to be a part of the loan. This means that you can easily request a loan without having to worry about getting rejected. Although some lenders could perform a soft credit pull, your credit score won’t be affected in any way.

District Court Denies Payday Lender’s Bid To Dismiss SEC Enforcement Action | Goodwin https://slychi.com/district-court-denies-payday-lenders-bid-to-dismiss-sec-enforcement-action-goodwin/ Tue, 15 Mar 2022 11:16:41 +0000 https://slychi.com/?p=1192

IN THIS ISSUE

District Court Denies Payday Lender’s Bid To Dismiss SEC Enforcement Action; Delaware Chancery Court Dismisses Camping World Insider Trading Derivative Suit; California Federal Judge Certifies Class Of Apple Common-Stock Holders Alleging Company Made Misleading Statements About iPhone Sales; BlockFi To Pay $100 Million In Penalties For Failing To Register Its Crypto Lending Product; SEC Proposes Changes To Whistleblower Program Rules

__

On February 2, 2022, the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida in SEC v. Sky Group USA LLC, et al., denied Sky Group USA LLC (“Sky Group”) and its CEO Efran Betancourt’s motion to dismiss a U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission complaint alleging that the payday lending business fraudulently raised more than $66 million from over 500 investors. The SEC alleged that Sky Group violated both the Securities Act and Exchange Act by selling promissory notes to investors while falsely representing that their investments would be used to fund consumer payday loans, and would be returned over the course of the year with interest. The SEC alleges that Sky Group instead spent significant portions of these investor funds on other business expenses, Betancourt’s personal expenses, and “Ponzi-like” repayments to earlier investors. The defendants moved to dismiss, arguing that the court lacked subject matter jurisdiction because the notes Sky Group sold to investors were not “securities” and therefore were not subject to regulation under the Securities Act.

In Reves v. Ernst & Young, 494 U.S. 56 (1990), the U.S. Supreme Court held that any note with a term of more than nine months is presumptively a security, but that the presumption can be rebutted if a defendant demonstrates that a particular note bears a “strong resemblance” to certain enumerated categories of notes that do not constitute securities because they are issued in a commercial or consumer context, rather than an investment context. The Supreme Court instructed courts deciding whether a particular instrument bears such a “strong resemblance” to one of these excluded categories to consider four factors, including: (1) the motivation for buyers and sellers to enter a transaction, (2) the distribution plan of the instrument, (3) the reasonable expectations of the investing public, and (4) the existence of another regulatory scheme that reduces the risk of the investment.

Applying this test, the Sky Group court denied defendants’ motion to dismiss, finding that the notes sold to investors constituted securities under all four Reves factors. First, the Court noted that Sky Group used proceeds from the notes for general business purposes — even though the notes were nominally intended only to finance payday loans — which supported a finding that the notes were securities. Next, the court found that the notes had a wide scope of distribution, as they were sold to over 500 investors from 18 U.S. states and 19 different countries, which indicated that there was “common trading for speculation or investment,” a key feature of securities. In addition, the court found that Sky Group pitched the notes as a safe income-generating investment, and the investing public would have reasonably considered the notes to be securities based on this marketing. Finally, the court noted that there was no other regulatory scheme besides the Securities Act that could have reduced the risk of the notes, rejecting the defendants’ argument that security provisions of the notes rendered regulation under the Securities Act unnecessary, finding that this protection was “illusory” because notes did not give the investors an enforceable lien or security in any particular Sky Group asset or receivable.

DELAWARE CHANCERY COURT DISMISSES CAMPING WORLD INSIDER TRADING DERIVATIVE SUIT

On January 31, 2022, the Delaware Court of Chancery dismissed a derivative suit concerning claims that RV and camping retailer Camping World’s directors profited by more than $530 million by selling their stock on the basis of material, non-public information (“MNPI”) regarding challenges that the company was experiencing with its integration of another outdoor retail chain it had recently acquired. The court found that the plaintiffs had failed to show that making a derivative demand on Camping World’s board would have been futile.

The derivate suit stems from Camping World’s 2017 acquisition of outdoor sporting goods retailer Gander Mountain Company at a bankruptcy auction. Plaintiffs alleged that Camping World experienced difficulties integrating Gander’s systems with its own and challenges in meeting the publicly-announced timelines to open 70 Gander store locations. Plaintiffs allege that once these challenges were publicly disclosed, it caused Camping World’s stock price to plummet.

The plaintiffs primarily alleged that five of Camping World’s nine directors breached their fiduciary duties by trading Camping World stock while aware of MNPI regarding the company’s difficulties with the Gander integration. Because plaintiffs did not make a demand upon the Camping World board before filing the derivative action, they were required to show such a demand would be futile by showing that the majority of directors either lacked independence from the directors accused of wrongdoing or faced significant personal liability. Plaintiffs contended that such a demand would be futile because a majority of the directors either faced a substantial likelihood of liability as a result of their own insider trades or lacked independence from the four directors they alleged engaged in insider trading.

Vice Chancellor Lori Will rejected plaintiffs’ demand futility arguments, concluding that at least five of the six independent directors (out of nine total directors) could have impartially considered a litigation demand. The court found that plaintiffs’ allegations that two independent directors faced a substantial likelihood of liability for insider trading for a series of trades in 2017 were insufficient because plaintiffs could not specifically identify any MNPI known by these directors prior to the trades. The court was unpersuaded by plaintiffs’ reliance on board minutes from several board meetings in 2017 — which plaintiffs claimed indicated that the company never had concrete plans to open 70 Gander stores and was running behind its initially-announced schedule for store openings — finding that the minutes did not indicate that the board had received any material information that was not already known to the market. The court further noted that any inference that these directors had knowingly traded on MNPI was negated by the fact that the challenged trades occurred after the company had already publicly disclosed delays to the store opening timeline and uncertainty about the number of stores.

The court also rejected plaintiffs’ additional allegations that five independent directors that had served on the audit committee faced a substantial likelihood of liability for preparing and reviewing allegedly misleading public statements regarding the Gander integration, similarly finding that plaintiffs failed to allege specific facts indicating that these directors were aware of information that materially contradicted the company’s statements. Having found that plaintiffs failed to establish that at least five of Camping World’s nine directors could not impartially consider a demand, the court dismissed the case and declined to further evaluate plaintiffs’ allegations concerning Camping World CEO and Chairman Marcus Lemonis and the two other non-independent directors.

CALIFORNIA FEDERAL JUDGE CERTIFIES CLASS OF APPLE COMMON-STOCK HOLDERS ALLEGING COMPANY MADE MISLEADING STATEMENTS ABOUT IPHONE SALES

On February 4, 2022, the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California granted certification of an investor class that purchased or otherwise acquired publicly-traded Apple Inc. securities from November 2, 2018 to January 2, 2019 and suffered damages due to alleged misrepresentations as to Apple’s financial condition. The court excluded from the class holders of Apple stock options, due to plaintiff’s failure to show that common questions of damages predominated with respect to option holders.

Lead Plaintiff Norfolk County Council brought the securities fraud class action against Apple, Timothy Cook (CEO), and Luca Maestri (CFO) for alleged violations of Sections 10(b) and 20(a) of the Securities Exchange Act and Rule 10b-5 promulgated thereunder. As alleged in the complaint, following an announcement of its financial results for Q4 2018 on November 1, 2018, Apple allegedly represented that business in China had been “very strong” the previous quarter, particularly in iPhone sales. But Apple allegedly knew when making these statements that U.S.-China trade tensions and China’s economic conditions were actually negatively impacting sales and the demand for Apple products, that retail sales were declining, and that the company was already cutting or preparing to cut iPhone production and reduce orders for the current quarter. Thereafter, in Q1 2019 on January 2, 2019, Apple preannounced an earnings shortfall, citing “[l]ower than anticipated iPhone revenue, primarily in Greater China, account[ing] for all of [Apple’s] revenue shortfall.” Apple’s stock price subsequently dropped from $157.92 per share on January 2, 2019, to $142.19 per share on January 3, 2019.

In opposition to plaintiff’s motion for class certification, defendants argued that Norfolk was not an adequate class representative due to certain errors it had made concerning the dates of its stock purchases and the share price used to calculate the sale of stock in a certification filed in support of its motion to be appointed as Lead Plaintiff, which it then corrected two years later without explanation. Defendants further argued that Norfolk’s November 12, 2018 acquisition of Apple shares was not a purchase but rather a transfer between accounts.

Judge Yvonne Gonzalez Rogers disagreed with both arguments, finding that Norfolk had corrected the inadvertent errors, there was no evidence of bad faith or intent to deceive the court, and that the errors did not demonstrate a conflict with the class. Plaintiff had also submitted records showing that it acquired Apple shares on November 12, 2018, in exchange for its investment in a pooled fund, and the court was not persuaded that this was meaningfully indicative of inadequacy.

Defendants also challenged plaintiff’s showing of predominance under Rule 23(b)(3), arguing that the reliance and damages elements of a Section 10(b) fraud claim could not be satisfied on a class-wide basis. The court disagreed, finding plaintiff made a prima facie showing sufficient to invoke a rebuttable presumption of reliance based on the “fraud-on-the-market” theory as to holders of Apple stock, and concluding that defendants failed to rebut this presumption by proving the alleged misrepresentations — particularly the January 2, 2019 disclosure — had no negative price impact.

The court did, however, exclude from the certified class holders of options of Apple stock, finding that plaintiffs had failed to show that common questions of damages predominated as to that category of investors in the putative class. The court reasoned that the 2,282 distinct Apple stock options that were available for trading during the relevant period had varying characteristics.

BLOCKFI TO PAY $100 MILLION IN PENALTIES FOR FAILING TO REGISTER ITS CRYPTO LENDING PRODUCT

On February 14, 2022, the SEC issued a Cease and Desist Order charging BlockFi Lending LLC (BlockFi) with failing to register the offers and sales of its retail crypto lending product. To settle the SEC’s charges, BlockFi agreed to pay a $50 million penalty, cease its unregistered offers and sales of the lending product, BlockFi Interest Accounts (BIAs), and attempt to bring its business within the provisions of the Investment Company Act within 60 days. BlockFi’s parent company also announced that it intends to register under the Securities Act of 1933 the offer and sale of a new lending product. In parallel actions announced the same day, BlockFi agreed to pay an additional $50 million in fines to 32 states to settle similar charges.

According to the SEC’s order, since March 4, 2019, BlockFi offered and sold BIAs, by which investors lend digital assets to BlockFi in exchange for monthly interest payments. The SEC found that BIAs are securities under applicable securities law, and the company was therefore required to register its offers and sales of BIAs. The order also found that BlockFi operated for more than 18 months as an unregistered investment company because it issued securities and also held more than 40% of its total assets, excluding cash, in investment securities, including loans of crypto assets to institutional borrowers. Finally, the order also found that BlockFi made false and misleading statements for more than two years on its website concerning the level of risk in its loan portfolio and lending activity, in particular representations that the loans were “typically” over-collateralized, when statistically they were not.

The SEC charged BlockFi with violations of Sections 5(a) and 5(c) of the Securities Act for offering and selling BIAs, which it found as notes constituted securities, without a registration statement filed or in effect with the SEC and without qualifying for an exemption from registration. The SEC also charged BlockFi with violations of Sections 17(a)(2) and (a)(3) of the Securities Act for allegedly making materially false and misleading statements on its website concerning its collateral practices and risks associated with its lending activity. Additionally, as a “first-of-its-kind” action, the SEC also charged BlockFi with violating Section 3(a)(2) of the Investment Company Act of 1940 for engaging in interstate commerce while failing to register as an investment company with the SEC.

According to SEC Chair Gary Gensler, this is “the first case of its kind with respect to crypto lending platforms” and that the settlement “makes clear that crypto markets must comply with time-tested securities laws… [and] further demonstrates the Commission’s willingness to work with crypto platforms to determine how they can come into compliance with those laws.”

SEC PROPOSES CHANGES TO WHISTLEBLOWER PROGRAM RULES

On February 10, 2022, the Securities and Exchange Commission proposed two amendments to the rules governing its whistleblower program. If adopted, Exchange Act Rules 21F-3 and 6 will “help ensure that whistleblowers are both incentivized and appropriately rewarded for their efforts in reporting potential violations of law to the Commission.” The first proposed amendment would allow awards for related actions where an alternative award program would provide an award that is meaningfully lower than the SEC’s whistleblower program would allow. This amendment is aimed at alleviating concern that similarly situated whistleblowers could end up with disparate awards, thereby better incentivizing whistleblowers to come forward. The second amendment would eliminate the SEC’s authority to decrease a whistleblower’s potential monetary award, clarifying that the SEC’s discretion will only be used for the purpose of increasing a potential monetary award. These proposed amendments are consistent with the SEC’s efforts to expand its whistleblower program by providing further incentives and to encourage companies to establish appropriate mechanisms to encourage internal reporting of alleged misconduct and processes to investigate and address concerns.

Why Should You Pick No Credit Check Loans With Direct Lenders?

Borrowers have so many options in today’s market.  So what makes FundsJoy the best of the best?  Why is FundsJoy the most trusted loan-lending company out there? What are the practices followed by FundsJoy as a bad credit loan provider? To answer these questions and everything you need to know about, continue reading as we have listed some of the major reasons why FundsJoy should be your go-to place whenever you need a loan for bad credit.

Things To Remember About No Credit Check Loans With Guaranteed Approval

Getting a loan online, is awesome but it can definitely have some limitations.  If you are going to go the route of an online loan, here are some things that you need to keep in mind:

  1. Online loan lending websites such as FundsJoy do not promise a guarantee that you will find a loan. They are not actual lenders or brokers, so in case you do not find an appropriate lender, they can not do anything about it.
  2. Secured loans are taken as collateral but have lower APR as compared to unsecured loans. However, you may lose your belongings in case you are unable to repay the loan within the specified timeframe.
  3. You have to remember that not all lenders are able to provide loans in your State.  Therefore, it is important to know which lenders are able to provide you with the best bad credit loan.

How to Spot the Best Direct Lender With Installment Loans

FundsJoy has the ability to connect borrowers with over 60 direct lenders.   These lenders offer loans on slightly different terms and conditions. So how can you decide which lender you should choose? What are the differentiating factors between a genuine and fake lender? Stick along because we are here to help you in choosing the best lender!

1. Positive Customer Reviews

As you search for an ideal lender, be sure to review their customer reviews online. There you will find the overall performance of the lender, what type of loans they offer, how quick is their turnaround time, and much more!

2. Negotiable terms and conditions

Professional lenders are always open to talking about their terms and conditions of their loans.  They are never afraid of negotiating these terms with you.   In certain cases, they are also willing to modify them. If a lender is vague about these conditions and charges associated with the loan, it is very likely to cause a lot of trouble for you in the future.

3. Payment transfer methods and timing

Emergency loans, as the name indicates, are required urgently. Some people might need to pay for their hospital dues and others might want to buy college supplies. Therefore, you should always ensure that the lender you are choosing would be able to transfer the funds as soon as you need them. Moreover, the payment method they are using should be accessible to you. Before you finally sign off on your bad credit loan, you can negotiate the terms and interest rates that they offer before you officially sign off on the loan.

4. Clear and concise about charges

There are a variety of charges associated with a loan such as APR, interest rate, processing fee, and much more. Always choose a lender who has listed these charges in a clear and concise manner. Moreover, if you cannot understand something, make sure to discuss it with them beforehand. Make sure that the lender is transparent and that they are providing the terms and conditions that they offer.

What does a Direct Online Lender Ask From the Borrower Regarding Bad Credit Loans?

If you are looking for hardship loans for bad credit, there is an important thing you need to know about your prospective lender.  If you have good credit, you are probably able to get a loan from any lender.  If you have bad credit, you are limited to getting a bad credit loan.   They want to know about the score to estimate your financial status. However, in the case of a bad credit loan, the credit score does not hold significant importance since it’s already evident that the credit score is not satisfactory. So, how does a lender judge your credibility? How do they estimate your financial status? And what makes them sure about loan repayment? They do this by asking for different documents that can give them insights into your financial situation. You should keep these documents prepared in advance to avoid delays in your loan approval. Continue reading to know what these documents are and why they are required:

1. Proof of Income

If you get a bad credit loan, it is important that you pay back this loan in time.  Your lender will typically come after you if you don’t repay it in time.  To get a loan in the first place you will have to provide proof of income.

To do this, they may ask you for proof of income. It can be provided in the form of payslip, W-25 form, 1099s, or tax returns documents. Besides, your lender may also ask for your bank statements to analyze your spending and monthly budgeting. Remember that the lenders are experienced in this field and they can estimate a lot of things regarding your financial stability just by looking at your bank statement.

Lastly, in certain cases, your lender may also ask for your employer’s contact information to take feedback on your performance and maybe to confirm your employment there. All these documents can be obtained from the Human Resource Department of your organization.

2. Proof of Identity

When you are getting a loan, you lender will verify that you are a US citizen.  This is part of the process that they go through when they verify your identity.  They also need this information to ensure you have no criminal records. Identity proofs can be provided in the form of a national identity card, passport, or driver’s license. In certain cases, the lender might ask for utility bills as well.

3. Loan purpose

It is always helpful to you if you explain to your lender why you are taking a loan.   It allows the lender to understand your emergency and tailor an offer specifically for your requirements. For instance, if you are taking a loan to pay your fee, you can show them the challan form, whereas, if your want to pay hospital dues, you can show them those bills. It is recommended to truthfully explain your requirements to the lender so you can get the best possible deal.

Got your documents ready, what to do next?

After you have these documents ready, you should apply for a loan for bad credit right away! To do that, start searching for a lender. Remember how we discussed in this article earlier, that while choosing a lender, you should analyze their reviews and read their terms and conditions. After shortlisting a few lenders, negotiate the charges and terms with them. Lastly, choose a lender who is offering the best deal. After you have selected your lender, they will perform their due diligence on you and will take you further down the application process.

After you submit an application or finalize a deal, you have to undergo a hard credit inquiry. Remember that, unlike soft credit inquiry, hard credit inquiries have a negative impact on your credit score. Therefore, you should have it done, only when you are sure that you are going to deal with that lender. Lastly, read the terms and conditions once again, and before signing a deal, make sure that you will be able to repay the loan in time.

Frequently Asked Questions About No Credit Check Payday Loans

1. What is a bad credit score according to FICO?

FICO says that a credit score between 600 and 660 is a fair score.  If your credit score is below 600, it is considered to be a bad credit score.  If your credit score is below this level that means that you are a candidate for a bad credit loan.

2. Should you avoid payday loans?

Payday loans are very easy to obtain and do not require a good credit score. However, they are offered at very high-interest rates and the terms and conditions are often unfavorable for you in the long run. The APR usually ranges from 300% to 400% and the additional charges associated with them are also sky-high. We generally recommend that you avoid payday loans at all costs.  If you absolutely have to, then take it.  But remember that you have other options available to you that will have better terms and conditions.

Certain lenders try to lure you into payday loans without actually telling you that they are offering it. They do this to obtain maximum benefit out of the high interest rates. However, you should be able to identify a payday loan through the following points:

  1. The loan amount is way too small
  2. You find that the repayment schedule is too short.
  3. APR is through the roof! (high)

These are the usual indicators of payday loans and if you notice them, make sure to discuss it with your lender that you do not want to take a payday loan.

play

Lawmakers wrapped up the 2022 legislative session last week, closing out a fast-paced session dominated by social issues. 

The short session ended shortly after 12:30 a.m. Wednesday, days before the end date required under Indiana law. Already Gov. Eric Holcomb has started signing bills. 

For subscribers: Legislative session defined by GOP infighting, social issues and calls for transparency

Here’s the final outcome of the legislation IndyStar was watching this legislative session:

Permitless handgun carry

Lawmakers approved a bill on March 8 that would eliminate the license requirement to carry a handgun. Holcomb has not said whether he will sign the measure. 

The language was originally in a different bill that was killed in the Indiana Senate earlier in session, after the Senate Judiciary committee voted to gut the bill. Lawmakers, though, had promised to strip language out of an unrelated bill and replace it with so-called “constitutional carry,” but where that language would land was unclear until the final day of session. 

It was inserted into House Bill 1296, and approved by the House by a 69-30 vote, and the Senate by a 30-20 vote. Some Republicans joined with Democrats to vote against the measure.

Tax cuts

Lawmakers approved a $1.1 billion tax cut package on the last day of the legislative session, which could reduce Indiana’s income tax rate from 3.23% to 2.9% over seven years. 

Once fully phased in, Indiana’s tax rate would be tied for the lowest flat income rate in the country under House Bill 1002. But the majority of the tax could take longer than seven years to go into effect, nor is there a guarantee a large chunk of the tax cut will even happen. That’s because after the first tax cut in 2023, future tax cuts would only occur if state revenue growth reached 2% the prior year. That threshold is usually met, unless there is a serious economic downturn like there was in 2020.

The bill also repealed the Utility Receipts Tax and Utility Services Use Tax. In its initial form, the bill would have nixed the 30% depreciation floor for new business equipment, amounting to a sizeable tax cut for manufacturers. That provision did not make it into the final version.

Agency oversight

Lawmakers stuck provisions of House Bill 1100, which would have increased oversight over state agencies, into House Bill 1211 on the last day of session.

The final bill no longer contained more restrictive language that would have prohibited agency rules from being more stringent than corresponding federal rules, but agencies still will have to renew rules more frequently and also will be required to submit to state lawmakers an economic impact statement and explanation of any penalty associated with a proposed new rule. 

State fossil

Indiana now has a state fossil. House Bill 1013, which would name the mastodon Indiana’s state fossil, passed the Senate by a 39-6 vote on Feb. 14. Holcomb signed in it into law on March 7. 

Already Indiana had a state snack, popcorn; a state bird, the cardinal; a state insect, Say’s firefly; and a state flower, the peony. But it’s one of five states without a state fossil.

Vaping tax bill

A bill that would reduce a tax on some vaping products before it could go into effect is heading to Holcomb for consideration.

Senate Bill 382 would, among other things, reduce the tax on non-refillable vape pens set to go into effect in July from 25% of the wholesale price to 15%. The change would ensure the tax matches those on refillable vape products, but opponents are concerned about the impact lowering the rate before it goes into effect could have on kids.

The House approved the measure by a 66-32 vote, while the Senate approved it by a 38-12 vote on March 8.

Economic development

Under Senate Bill 361, which received a final vote from both chambers on March 8, the Indiana Economic Development Corporation would be able to create Innovation Development Districts, in an attempt to lure more high-dollar economic development projects to the state.

These districts would capture most new state income, state sales and local property taxes generated by the district. The money generated could be used to cover debt, pay for utilities or transportation infrastructure, acquire land, recruit new businesses and pay for employee training within the districts. 

The final bill also included a film and media production tax credit. It now goes to Holcomb for consideration.

Bail changes

In the final hours of the 2022 legislative session, lawmakers approved a bill that would prevent charitable bail organizations from bailing out people accused of violent crime in Indiana. 

House Bill 1300 would also bar the bail organizations from posting bond for anyone facing a felony charge who has previously been convicted of a violent crime. Nonprofits who bail out more than three people in a 180 day period would have to pay a $300 certification fee every two years under the legislation, and groups that receive grant funding from the state and local governments would be prohibited from bailing indigent people out of jail. 

Lawmakers in conference committee removed language from the bill that would create a Marion County pilot program that would, among other things, set a minimum cash bond for people accused of violent crimes and double that bond amount for those with previous convictions for violent crimes.

It is now in the governor’s hands. 

Targeting crime in Marion County

A measure that aims to establish electronic monitoring standards for people on pretrial release or probation landed on Holcomb’s desk after the Senate approved House amendments March 2.

Led by Sen. Kyle Walker, R-Lawrence, Senate Bill 9 would require a supervising agency to notify a victim within 15 minutes of someone’s monitor going offline. It also includes language that allows for a backup verification method of a tracked person’s compliance with standards to account for accidental interference with the electronic monitors.  

And Senate Bill 7, which aims to create a formal partnership between law enforcement agencies in downtown Indianapolis, was sent to the governor after receiving conference committee approval March 7.

Senate Bill 10, which aims to establish a law enforcement grant program zeroing in on crime hotspots in Marion County, is tied into that measure.  

Jail crowding

Gov. Eric Holcomb on Tuesday signed HEA 1004, a bill designed to ease overcrowding inside Indiana’s county jails. The new law will allow judges to resume sentencing people convicted of low-level felonies into state prisons. The change reverses part of Indiana’s landmark criminal justice reform bills from the mid-2010s, which resulted in sending most of those people into local jails. The bill gained bipartisan approval in both chambers and counted supporters among county officials and law enforcement. 

Backers from both parties have pitched the bill as a way to ease jail overcrowding, which is a rampant problem in Indiana. They also say the bill would provide some people with greater access to drug and mental health treatment inside state prisons because many rural county jails lack those services. The bill is widely supported by county officials and law enforcement, but even some supporters noted it would reverse past attempts by the legislature to be less punitive on crimes driven by mental health issues and drug addiction.

Home-based vendors

Gov. Holcomb on March 8 signed into law a bill that loosens restrictions on the selling of homemade shelf-stable foods.

House Bill 1149 allows such foods to be sold from vendors’ homes, online, through shipping within the state and at any place a direct-to-consumer transaction can occur. Currently, the sales are limited to farmers markets and roadside stands.

The new law takes effect July 1.

Concerns with Marion County Democratic leader

Lawmakers nixed language from a bill that would have forced the chair of the Marion County Democratic Party to resign her chairmanship or tap out of the race for Marion County clerk.

The language split Democrats and was the latest example of the inner-party rift in Indianapolis. 

Some Marion County Democrats successfully added on language to the Republican-authored Senate Bill 328, forbidding the chair of a Marion County political party from holding or seeking elected office. Local Democratic party chair Kate Sweeney Bell is running for Marion County clerk.

But Democrats selected to the conference committee for bill, Sen. J.D. Ford of Indianapolis and Rep. Tonya Pfaff of Terre Haute, agreed to remove the language.

The House and Senate adopted the conference committee report on March 7 and 8, and the bill was signed by the House speaker on March 9.

Absentee voting

The House voted to concur on changes to House Bill 1116, an elections-related bill by a 95-0 vote on March 7, sending the bill to the governor. 

Under the bill, a voter would have to provide either their driver’s license number or the last four digits of their Social Security number in order to request an absentee mail-in ballot online. The legislation also moves up the date by which counties have to outfit electronic voting machines so that they print paper election records from 2029 to 2024.

Township trustee discipline

Township boards would have the power to remove a neglectful township trustee under legislation signed by the governor on March 7.

The bill follows a series of issues that townships throughout Indiana have had issues with their elected trustees — lawmakers heard from employees in the neighboring Fairfield and Wabash townships in Lafayette and West Lafayette. The employees reported having issues with their trustees, citing instances where one failed to file an adopted township budget with the state and another faced multiple counts of felony theft. 

The legislation allows for a township board, county executive and county fiscal body to petition a court to have a trustee removed from their office for committing certain violations of duty. 

Null grades

Schools will not receive a letter grade from the state for academic performance this year. Traditionally, schools receive an A through F grade based on their students’ scores on state tests and several other metrics. This will be the fourth year that schools have either been held harmless or not received a letter grade.

In the 2018-19 school year, schools received a hold harmless after the state changed standardized exams from the ISTEP to the ILEARN test. The pandemic canceled state testing the following year, in the spring of 2020. The null grade was issued for last year, in recognition of the pandemic’s impact on education over the last two years. With the pandemic continuing to disrupt education, Rep. Bob Behning, R-Indianapolis, said the Indiana Department of Education requested the legislature allow for another null grade.

HB 1093 passed the House unanimously. It was amended by the Senate and passed on March 1. A final version of the bill was adopted and approved by both chambers on March 8.

Electric vehicles

A House bill that lays the beginnings of a regulatory framework governing the expansion of electric vehicle charging in Indiana and who would pay for it, is on its way to the governor’s desk.

House Bill 1221, which garnered support from state electric utilities, auto manufacturers and clean energy advocates, comes on the heels of President Joe Biden’s infrastructure law promising Indiana $100 million for electric vehicle charging infrastructure projects. It passed out of the Senate Utilities Committee unanimously on Feb. 10.

It allows electric utilities to create pilot programs deploying charging infrastructure for “public use” electric vehicles, such as public transit, school buses and emergency vehicles, and recover the cost of those programs by charging higher public rates. 

The bill also allows private companies, like gas stations, to buy and sell electricity from the utilities that service their area for the purpose of electric vehicle charging.

Material harmful to minors

Senate Bill 17 would have removed a protection for K-12 schools and public libraries from the state’s law against distributing “harmful material” to minors. 

Supporters of the bill said it was an important step to protect children from accessing pornographic material but opponents call it a form of censorship that will be used to ban books. Similar legislation was attempted last year, but failed. This year, the idea gained steam as part of a slate of legislation targeting conservative social issues but was ultimately derailed by the legislative process.

It passed the Senate on Feb. 1 but didn’t get a hearing in the House. The House did pass similar language in House Bill 1134, but the Senate stripped the provision from that bill. Lawmakers tried to amend into related legislation in the final hours of the legislative session but the Senate killed the “Christmas tree” bill it was added to over concerns about how many unrelated provisions were tacked onto one piece of legislation.

School funding fix

At the start of the fall semester, COVID-19 cases among Indiana students were surging. Thousands of students tested positive and even more were identified as a close contact and told to quarantine at home. Schools worried that these quarantines could lead to cuts in state funding if students were counted as virtual.

More: Lawmakers making good on promises to protect schools from pandemic’s effects

Legislative leaders assured schools in September that they would pursue a fix, ensuring schools are fully funded for the fall semester. Senate Bill 2 allows the Indiana Department of Education to consider a student’s attendance over the entire first semester when determining their in-person status.

A final version of the bill was approved by both chambers of the Indiana General Assembly March 8.

Exoneree compensation

A bill that supporters say will make it easier for people who were wrongfully convicted to get money from the state for the years they spent incarcerated is headed to the governor’s desk.

The House on March 8 passed House Bill 1283 on a 94-1 vote. The Senate on the same day passed it on a 36-14 vote.

HB 1283, authored by Rep. Greg Steuerwald, R-Avon, will require exonerees who want to be compensated to prove they’re innocence “by a preponderance of the evidence” — a low and easy-to-achieve burden of proof. Those who are approved for compensation will get $50,000 for every year they spent behind bars. 

The bill will suspend payments to people who are incarcerated for a crime unrelated to the one for which they were wrongfully convicted. 

Coerced abortion

House Bill 1217, a bill aimed at preventing coerced abortions, is on it was to Holcomb’s desk after the House concurred with the Senate’s minor changes to the bill by a 78-10 vote on March 1.

The bill would require women seeking an abortion to be asked if they are being coerced into doing so. If an abortion clinic employee suspects someone is being coerced — a Level 6 felony under the bill — they clinic must report it to law enforcement, who must then investigate.

Planned Parenthood Alliance Advocates and other opponents argue the bill’s requirements are “redundant and unnecessary,” and do not target the root issues of domestic and sexual violence.

CRT-related bills

Indiana lawmakers filed a number of bills inspired by the critical race theory debate that has been raging at school boards around the country. Two of them received hearings but, in the end, the Senate killed both.

Senate Bill 167 and House Bill 1134 would have, among a long list of things, prohibited public K-12 schools from teaching students that “any sex, race, ethnicity, religion, color, national origin, or political affiliation” is inherently superior, inferior, racist, sexist, oppressive. They also sought to ban teaching that any individual should feel “discomfort, guilt, anguish, responsibility or any other form of psychological distress” on account of those same characteristics or that meritocracy was created by one group to oppress another.

SB 167 received a lengthy hearing Jan. 5. Senate Republicans killed it Jan. 14. HB 1134 passed the House Jan. 25 but was heavily amended by the Senate Feb. 16 and again on Feb. 23. After hours of closed-door discussions, Senate Republicans killed the bill on Feb. 28. Senate President Pro Tempore Rodric Bray, R-Martinsville, said some members of the caucus thought the watered-down version didn’t go far enough and others thought it was bad policy. 

Transgender sports ban

On March 1, the Indiana Senate voted in favor of House Bill 1041, which would prohibit transgender girls from playing girls sports at the K-12 schools level. 

The controversial measure has been opposed by the ACLU and the LGBTQ community, who say it is discriminatory. Rep. Michelle Davis, R-Whiteland, said she wrote the bill to protect fair play in girls sports.

Changing agenda: How Indiana Republican lawmakers changed their sights from gay rights to trans issues

Earlier in the session it was passed along largely party lines by the House. Since the Senate made no changes, the bill goes directly to Gov. Eric Holcomb. Some advocacy groups and state Democrats have urged him to veto the measure.

Holcomb has yet to say it he’ll sign the bill but he did signal support for the concept. 

Vaccine mandates and the end of emergency

The House decided by a 78-10 vote to concur with a bill that ultimately ended Indiana’s public health emergency on March 3. That sent the bill to Holcomb’s desk, and within hours he had signed it and rescinded the emergency. 

The law allows the state to continue to receive certain types of federal funding and permits children under age 12 to get a COVID-19 vaccination outside a doctor’s office, provisions that are were only allowed because of the public health emergency. 

House Bill 1001 also requires private businesses that have COVID-19 vaccine mandates to grant employees exemptions for medical or religious reasons. Employers also will have to allow for exemptions for those who test positive for antibodies due to “natural immunity” in the previous three months.

Rape loophole

After years of failed attempts to change Indiana law, a bill that would help better define consent under Indiana law is heading to Holcomb’s desk. 

Under House Bill 1079, a person who has sexual intercourse with someone who attempts to “physically, verbally, or by other visible conduct refuse the person’s acts” commits rape. Indiana law currently states that intercourse is only considered rape if it’s done by force or if it occurs with someone who is mentally incapacitated or unaware that it’s happening. 

The Senate unanimously approved the bill on March 1, and then the House voted to concur with Senate changes on the bill on March 2, by a 90-1 vote, sending the bill to Holcomb. 

Automatic taxpayer refund

At the request of Holcomb, lawmakers passed a bill expanding who can qualify for this year’s automatic taxpayer refund, triggered by higher than expected state revenues. According to a fiscal analysis on Senate Bill 1, because of the changes, an additional 440,000 people without a tax liability would now qualify.

Senate Bill 1, which previously passed out of the Senate, unanimously passed out of the House on Feb. 17 and now heads to Holcomb’s desk for consideration.

Banning ‘slumlords’ from buying property at foreclosure and tax sales

A bipartisan bill that would allow sheriff foreclosure sales to be conducted online was successfully amended on Jan. 26 to include a “slumlord provision,” as bill co-author Rep. Mitch Gore, D-Indianapolis, called it. House Bill 1048 would ban landlords who have ongoing housing code violations against them or who are tax delinquent from purchasing foreclosed properties at sheriff sales. 

The bill passed out of the House 87-3 on Jan. 27 and passed unanimously out of the Senate on March 1. It now heads to the Governor.

Supporters of the bill say it will be a significant step to ensuring that bad actor landlords are not able to acquire more property and cause more damage to low-income renters. Moving sheriff sales online would make it easier for out-of-state or even out-of-country landlords to purchase foreclosed properties in Indiana and bill advocates say the prohibition is necessary to guarantee irresponsible landlords do not take advantage of this avenue.

Eviction expungement

House Bill 1214 would allow tenants to request court expungement of eviction filings in cases where the eviction is dismissed, the judgement is in favor of the tenant, or if no action was taken by the landlord or property manager in 180 days.

It passed out of the House unanimously on Jan. 26 and passed out of the Senate Feb. 22. It returned to the House with minor amendments, where it received support for the changes on March 1. The bill is now in the Governor’s hands.

Tenant and landlord advocates alike support the bill as a major, much-needed solution to the problem of tenants being unable to find housing, because eviction filings on their record deter potential landlords from renting to them. However, housing advocates are concerned by a prohibition in the bill against any mandatory eviction diversion programs in the state. Indiana’s current eviction diversion program is voluntary and participation has been extremely low

Compensating landowners for eminent domain

When local governments want to build a new highway or a road, they often must acquire property owned by private owners through eminent domain. Currently, they must only pay at least the appraised market value of the property, although that can be — and often is — contested by the property owner through legal settlement or litigation. 

Senate Bill 29 would raise the compensation owned to those property owners for condemnation — or the taking of their property — to 120% of the appraised market value. It passed out of the Senate by a vote of 40-7 on Jan. 24 but failed to gain a hearing in the House and is now dead. 

Advocates of the bill, including the Indiana Farm Bureau, say it advances property rights of landowners who deserve fairer compensation for the taking of their land. But its opponents worry it could increase the cost of building critical public infrastructure.

Affordable housing development tax credits

Riding on bipartisan support, Senate Bill 262, which would create a statewide affordable housing tax credit system, passed out of the Senate unanimously on Jan. 24 but failed to advance in the House. 

A similar bill incentivizing affordable housing development had previously passed in the Senate in 2020, but also failed in the House. 

Indiana has a severe lack of affordable housing, advocates say, and the bill would funnel federal tax credits to affordable housing developers seeking to develop units for low-income renters. With broad-based support from both the association representing landlords and tenant advocates, the bill is touted as a much-needed first step to fixing the state’s housing affordability crisis.

Marion County Sheriff spending

A Senate bill that would have restricted the Marion County Sheriff Office’s ability to spend money from its commissary fund failed to receive a hearing in the House Committee on Local Government and subsequently pass out of the House. 

Senate Bill 307 would have required the department to present a quarterly update regarding purchases out of the fund. It passed the Senate on Jan. 27 by a 35-11 vote.

Democrats have voiced concern against the bill, which applied only to Marion County. Sheriff Kerry Forestal told lawmakers that his office already delivers a report every six months for the city-county council detailing spending from that fund.

Digital billboard in Marion County

The Marion County Fairgrounds won’t be getting a new digital billboard sanctioned through a Senate bill that failed to make it through the House. 

SB 142, sponsored by Indianapolis Republican Sen. Jack Sandlin, managed to pass  the Senate on Jan. 31 — but it failed to get a hearing in the House after being referred to the Committee on Local Government on Feb. 7. 

Loan sharking

A bill that would have enabled lenders to offer a higher interest loan that the state currently would classify as felony loan sharking, died earlier in session after not receiving a House committee hearing. 

Under Senate Bill 352, lenders could have charged an interest rate of 36% on most loans up to $2,500, plus an additional 13% monthly maintenance fee, substantially driving up total interest. Supporters say the bill created a method to assist Hoosiers who need money while also helping them build their credit back up, instead of forcing them to rely solely on controversial payday loans. Opponents, though, said the excess fees are dangerous, nor does the legislation prohibit problematic payday lending.

Speed cameras

A Senate bill seeking to establish a pilot program using speed cameras in highway work zones failed to meet the second-reading deadline in the House and is now dead.

Senate Bill 179, authored by Sen. Jon Ford, R-Terre Haute, catches offenders speeding 11 mph or more over the speed limit in work zones while workers are present. Speed cameras capture pictures of the driver’s license plate, then mails them a fine — a warning for the first offense, $75 for the second and $150 for the third. There is an appeals process if the owner of the vehicle was not the driver.

Lawmakers have attempted similar legislation for several years; this is the furthest a bill has gotten.

Turn signals

A Senate bill seeking to slim down the state’s statutes on turn signal compliance failed to meet the House’s second reading deadline and is now dead. 

Senate Bill 124 proposed getting rid of the statute that requires a turn signal 200 feet before making a turn or changing lanes, or 300 feet on a highway. A separate statute that simply says drivers must use turn signals “before” making the movement remains intact. The bill’s author, Sen. Aaron Freeman, R-Indianapolis, argued the 200-foot rule is unreasonable for many urban areas and can lead to arbitrary or preemptory traffic stops.

The confusion over whether the bill proposed getting rid of turn signals completely sparked an initial outcry on social media and caught the attention of national media.

Passenger Rail

The Senate passed a bill seeking to establish a commission that would study and advocate for the expansion of passenger rail in Indiana, but it failed to get a hearing in the House.

Though the Senate has demonstrated over the years a disinterest in passenger rail, as one senator put it during a hearing, Republican committee chairman Michael Crider said he chose to hear the bill because of the potential influx of federal funding from the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act. Indiana can compete for $12 billion of federal-state partnership grants available to bolster or establish inter-city rail service.

But since the House committee deadline has passed, the bill is dead.

Best Online Payday Loans In 2022 – List Of Top Online Lenders For The Best Same Day Loans And Emergency Loans With Best Interest Rates | No Credit Check Loans Instant Approval https://slychi.com/best-online-payday-loans-in-2022-list-of-top-online-lenders-for-the-best-same-day-loans-and-emergency-loans-with-best-interest-rates-no-credit-check-loans-instant-approval/ Tue, 15 Mar 2022 11:16:26 +0000 https://slychi.com/?p=1231

Payday loans are some of the best options for emergency funding. They are like getting an advance on your salary or part of it. Consider payday loans if you are in a tight place and need quick financing to sort things out. In particular, consider going for online payday loans.

These are loans you can secure online when you provide specific details concerning what you earn. Payday loans no longer have to be difficult to access, and they don’t have to be from lenders you have to meet physically. There are many online payday loans companies, and we have made an exclusive selection to ease the process of choosing.

What would work best for you? Would you rather have the resources to last until the next payday or have to borrow against the next payday? We are aware that nobody wants to always be in debt or have payday loans to repay. But bills and emergencies happen, so we find ourselves looking for the best possible help to bail us out.

How much you earn and how much you take as a loan will determine what you have left after each month’s debit. Therefore, it is crucial not to get carried away with how much you take unless you need the entire amount for an emergency. Otherwise, keep the amount as low as possible, taking only the exact amount you need. It will make repayment easy for you.

Apart from helping you secure online payday loans, BadCreditLoans specializes in securing all types of loans for applicants with varying credit scores. The reason for the short term loan does not affect whether or not the company guarantees one for you; it does not demand you state the reason as part of its requirements.

But before it gives you the loan you need, BadCreditLoans teaches you some basic things about taking loans and how to pay them back without stress. It makes different resources available and gives the option of choosing the one that benefits you the most. With the information provided, you are better equipped to manage your payday loans and others you may secure in the future.

Applying for a loan through the company is not an arduous task. You will get a form on its site asking you to provide basic personal information. But you will also need to provide citizenship proof, the required loan amount, and why you need that amount. However, whatever you put as the reason for the loan does not affect your success.

BadCreditLoans does not lend directly to customers; it has a network of lenders that provide unsecured loan sums that you pay back with interest. The company sends your application out to the lender network it works with and gets a response. As soon as there is a suitable lender willing to work with you, the company directs you to the lender’s site for further negotiations and agreement.

However, if you don’t agree with the lender, you can return and request a new lender. You are under no obligation to go with the first lender that comes your way. The most important part is to agree on terms that favor you in the long run.

Within the next business day, you can receive the amount requested. And there is up to $10,000 available if your lender agrees to lend you that amount. If they do, however, it is a good enough sum to cover a lot of bills.

Highlights

Application Process: Applying for a loan with BadCreditLoans is pretty quick and straightforward. All you have to do is fill a form and get approval. Then, you are connected to a lender and receive an offer.

Fees: BadCreditLoans does not charge any additional fees for using its services.

Amount to Receive: You have a loan amount range of $500 to $10,000 to choose from. The amount is good enough to cover many emergencies and home bills, though it may not be enough for cost-intensive emergencies.

All Credit Ratings Accepted: Credit scores play no role in the vetting and approval process for payday loans. So, you have a chance of approval in case of poor credit scores.

Repayment Plan: BadCreditLoans gives up to 36 months to repay loans. That way, you have a chance to stretch the plan and work within a comfortable schedule.

Pros

  • Easy process of application
  • Service is provided at no cost
  • Good-sized loan sum
  • Educational resources available
  • Flexible repayment plan

Cons

#3. CashUSA– Easy Approval for Fast Cash Advance

image

It goes beyond just providing resources to educate its customers on how best to use acquired loans. CashUSA educates both new and old customers on ways to check their credit history and ensure the scores are correct, plus how to calculate debts. The resources help to eliminate mistakes during repayment.

CashUSA also makes securing payday loans online quick and easy. It does not matter what your credit score is; submit an application with the company, and it will find a lender within its network willing to lend a reasonable amount. Summarily, CashUSA teaches you how to manage the installment loans you take so you know how to put them to good use.

However, the application process is quite detailed; you may need to prepare before applying because you may not do it on the move. Though it is online, you will need to provide your name, email, and the bad credit loan amount you need. But you will also have to indicate whether or not you are in active military service and if your residence is your personal house. You will also provide a valid form of identification, social security number, and other details.

The upside of all the information you provide is that you don’t have to go in person to submit anything. And the company handles every other step of the process until it is time to approve a lender.

Highlights

Vast Lender Network: Every borrower gets a lender matched to them. Sometimes, you may even get more than one lender willing to work with you. It gives you better options.

Customer Base: A large customer base gives credibility to the company. And CashUSA has more than a million customers, both old and new.

Payout Time: It is an advantage to know there is a possibility of receiving a decision within a few minutes, and the lender may deposit the funds within 24 hours.

No Regulation: CashUSA does not stipulate what you can use the loan for, which is the norm for many personal loan companies. You are free to put it to any use, which gives you the liberty to settle personal debts.

Security: Your personal information is secure with CashUSA. It does not leak, and it does not get to any lender without prior notification.

Repayment: With a 70-month repayment plan, the schedule is flexible for low-income earners.

Charges: Like some other companies, CashUSA does not demand extra fees for using its services. The services are also fast and easy to use.

Resources: Available resources educate you on how to use the loan wisely and get financial freedom.

Pros

  • No regulations on loan usage
  • There are no additional fees for services
  • Security of personal information
  • Quick payout time
  • Easy repayment plan

#4. PersonalLoans – Multiple Direct Lenders For Personal Loans

image

One of the factors that make PersonalLoans stand out is the loan amount available to all categories of lenders. Then, there is also the fact that it makes the process smooth and quick, which is a relief if you are looking for quick financing.

The company has an extensive online network of lenders with which it works. Plus, it partners with a third-party network; if no lender within its vast network works with you, PersonalLoans can send your application to this third-party network for further assessment and approval. For you, it means there must be more than one suitable lender. PersonalLoans always match you with a lender.

The company makes it easy for you to be involved in the process. When you submit your application—you may be asking for a loan amount of up to $35,000—PersonalLoans sends it out, and once you are matched, it leaves the negotiations up to you.

To apply, you fill a form as you do with other companies. But the difference with PersonalLoans is that each required piece of information has a stipulated reason why you are asked to provide it. It removes wariness and suspicion so that you know why you are aware of each step of the process. Plus, it builds confidence.

Based on the information you send to the company, it finds a suitable lender. Then, you negotiate terms on the lender’s site and come to an agreement. It does not require any additional information unless the lender requires it and you want to provide it. And within 24 hours, you may receive the money in your checking account. That is if you provide your bank details and your bank does not stall payment.

In addition to the above, the 72-month repayment period is long enough to suit all types of income. It puts no strain on you and does not necessarily affect what you have left after making each payment.

Highlights

Application: Applying for a loan is easy, which is typical for most loan companies. It is part of what attracts customers; nobody wants to spend too long on one application, especially while on the move.

Loan amount: $35,000 is a pretty sum to make available to every customer, both good and bad credit scores. It is a tidy sum that can cover different emergencies comfortably.

Payout: You can receive the desired amount into your account within the next business day if you provide your details.

A Vast Network of Lenders: Apart from the usual lender network, PersonalLoans has other choices of lenders to help with loans. If it cannot find a suitable lender within its network, the company looks outside. There is always a way to help.

Repayment: PersonalLoans allows for a date change if a specific date is unsuitable. And you have up to 72 months to repay the loan.

Fees: You don’t pay any extra cost for using the services of the company. They are all free of charge.

Pros

  • Large loan amounts
  • Free service
  • Wide lender network
  • Detailed application process
  • Quick process
  • Suitable repayment plan

Cons

  • Steep interest rates for people with poor credit
  • Possible disqualification due to poor credit

How We Made the List Of Best No Credit Check Loans

Our list of top companies to go to for online payday loans came out of deep research. We understand the importance of financial stability and getting the right institution with which to work. Therefore, we considered vital factors, sifted through what we got, and made the selection.

Security, results, privacy, and customer base are some of the factors that topped our list of criteria. They are part of what makes a reliable loan company, and they helped us pick our top four companies.

What We Looked for:

Here is a description of each criterion that helped us select the companies on our list:

  • Information Protection: Topping our list is the protection of information. It is a crucial factor to look for in a loan company. The one you choose should be able to protect your personal information and not hand it out without your consent. In addition, you don’t want to give out details about your earnings that could become compromised.
  • Rates: Another vital factor is the interest rates on repayment. While some lenders charge exorbitantly, others are more lenient. The rates may make or mar the choice of lender and how much strain there is on your earnings.
  • Network of Lenders: We chose the companies based on how vast their networks of payday lenders were. The wider the net, the better your chances of finding the right lender. We also considered whether or not they had third-party affiliations, though it was not a deal-breaker.
  • Ease of use: We considered that all categories of people would look for loans. So, we understand the importance of user-friendliness; anybody should be able to navigate and use the resources of these companies without help.
  • Accessibility: It helps to know that you can secure a loan from anywhere if you choose these companies. Whether you are on the move or at home, they should be readily accessible.
  • Loan Amounts: While this criterion seems to be the most important, it is not. However, we looked at how much each company could get on short notice.
  • Customer Base: How many people have used, and are still using, the companies matter. There is nothing that tells you more about a business than repeat customers and reviews.
  • Application Process: It is crucial to get all the required information for a loan application. But the process should not be arduous and prolonged. Long gone are the days of scary and lengthy applications.
  • Educational Materials: We put this criterion last because it is not as important as the rest. It is simply an advantage some have over others, and which is helpful to you.

Factors to Consider to Get the Best Online Payday Loan

There are certain factors that determine if you will get approval for a payday loan online and what your experience will be. Let’s discuss these crucial factors and what role they play.

Interest Rates

Getting a loan is great, but make sure you agree on a low interest rate when you pay it back. For every loan you take, no matter the type, there is an accompanying interest. Some direct lenders use the going market rate, while other lenders use other rates. And while some are almost unfair compared to the loan amounts, others are pretty favorable.

Do note that some rates fluctuate, so they may not remain favorable throughout the repayment period. Therefore, it is crucial to check the rates before agreeing on terms with any lender. That way, you don’t have to pay almost double what you borrowed.

Service Costs

You will find that some personal loan companies charge you for not having enough funds for origination or if your checks bounce. You will also be charged if you delay your payments without notice. Therefore, it is important to know the terms of a company and be sure you can stick with it before choosing it.

The loan companies on our list don’t charge fees for offering their services. But not all personal loan companies go down that path. Some charge for their services, albeit at low prices. The service cost should not be a deal-breaker if you are comfortable with the services and results on offer.

Reputation

It can be quite tricky for some people to tell the difference between a genuine loan company and a scam. You will find companies with some of the best offers, but they are only a way to get you to sign with them. Once you are in, you discover the services and rates are not what they seem to be.

In light of these possibilities, it is vital to research and find out the reputation of each company on your radar. Learn what customers have to say about them; reviews reveal a lot of truth. It helps to go for a loan company that has been in business for a number of years. But keep in mind that some new ones have already made an impact. So, the length of time in business does not always determine legitimacy.

Eligibility Status

How eligible are you to go for a payday loan? Loan companies give specific criteria that qualify applicants and let them know if they qualify. But there are also general criteria you should check before sending an application.

For instance, if you are less than 18 years old, most loan companies won’t consider you. And if you don’t live within the specified area or have a steady job, you lose eligibility. The same applies if you don’t earn a certain amount every month. For some, it is as low as $800; for others, the amount is higher.

Lenders want to know you have the capacity to pay back what you borrow money from them. Business is business, and no serious business person wants to lose money. The income does not have to be enormous; simply have a steady source of income and be willing to make payments when due.

Then, there is the yearly minimum to consider. While it is excellent to find a credible and suitable lender, keep the annual minimum. And consider whether or not the company demands a minimum credit score for all applicants having bad credit score. If you are not sure what your credit score is, request a report from any credit bureau and compare it to the Fair Isaac Corporation (FICO) chart.

However, it helps to find someone with an excellent credit rating to help with your application. Lenders generally become more willing if someone with a good credit score co-signs your application.

Terms

We place this factor last because some of the other factors may fit into it. The terms of the agreement are what determine how your loan experience plays out in the long run. Therefore, read the fine print before putting your name on it. Payday loans may not have strict guidelines and terms like bad credit loans, but they still carry stipulations that may or may not favor you.

Repayment Plan

Nobody wants to be saddled with the burden of a forceful loan repayment plan. Consider the amount of each payment and how long you have to pay the loan back, no matter how little. Then, place it side by side with how much you earn and the responsibilities you have.

To make it simple, go for a loan amount within your budget. Keep it small, just enough to meet some needs, if not all. That way, you will be able to repay without putting too much strain on your income. Otherwise, you risk going into more debt and destroying your credit score.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) About Emergency Loans For Bad Credit

  1. Are there alternatives to payday loans?

There are several options for taking a payday loan. One is to get a loan from loved ones or close relatives. Sometimes, they are the best option to secure a quick loan without accruing interests. Even if they request interests, they won’t be exorbitant. Just ensure you pay them when due or inform them if you are unable to make payments.

Another is to sell available valuables. If you have anything of value and are in a fix, you may want to consider selling it. You can also use it as collateral to get a secured loan. Personal loans are unsecured loans, meaning you don’t need collateral to get one. If you are unable to repay the loan, the valuables can be used to replace it. That way, it does not accrue undue interest.

Yet another alternative to a payday loan is a credit card cash advance. But the downside is that you may not get much if you take this path because what you get will depend on your card’s available limit. Another downside is that the annual percentage interest (APR) may be too high.

Do note that many online payday loans charge exorbitant interest rates. Inability to pay the amount owed and when due attracts penalties. And you may find yourself in an unpleasant debt cycle.

  1. Can I get a genuine online payday loan offer?

You can get a genuine online payday loan offer if you go for a legitimate company. Genuine ones always have an operating license, but you must also determine if they are permitted to operate in your area.

If you are not sure whether or not a lender is licensed to work in your location, make inquiries to find out more. It will interest you to note that some of these companies set up offices on tribal lands or offshore just to avoid regulations. Don’t do business with a company that cannot provide a valid license or a license to work within your location. It may leave you vulnerable to high interest rates and unfair penalties or even fraudulent transactions.

  1. Is a credit union a viable option for payday loans?

Only if you belong to a credit union is it a viable option for a payday loan. Typically, such a loan will cost less than the usual loan from a personal loan company. Plus, you have a longer time to repay the loan.

  1. Is a bank account a requirement for getting a payday loan?

A bank account is a crucial requirement for securing a loan from most personal loan companies, including those on our list. The bank account is for depositing the loan amount for which you apply. It is also for automatic withdrawals of due payments.

It helps to have an adequate amount in your account at any time so that the lender can withdraw when due. If you don’t have enough money in the account, inform the lender and ask for more time. Otherwise, you risk getting penalties and tanking your credit rating.

However, if you are looking for a payday loan but don’t have a bank account, contact the lender and ask for an alternative. That way, you know if there is a way to receive the money you apply for and pay it back when due.

  1. Can I get a payday loan with bad credit?

You can get a payday loan with bad credit. But you must be aware that your credit score may attract high-interest rates. But if you have an excellent or even fair credit score, the rates tend to be lower.

However, if you have a steady and stable source of income, you have a better chance of getting approval for a payday loan. The amount you earn does not have to be high; in some cases, the amount can be as low as $800, as we see with MoneyMutual. You must be able to prove that the income is steady, and you can follow the repayment plan. Lenders will be more willing to work with you if it is in place.

Payday Loans Online – Conclusion

Online payday loans are no longer challenging to secure. They can give you a breather if you need emergency help and your income can not cover it. Fortunately, we have listed personal loan companies with excellent offers and terms of service. You are sure to find a suitable option from the options of MoneyMutual, BadCreditLoans, CashUSA, and PersonalLoans.

Also, we listed and explained factors that determine whether or not you make the best of online payday loans. Consider the interest rates, terms of service, eligibility status, the reputation of the company, and service costs. If you can get these factors right, you will get the best experience.

Finally, we answered some pressing questions concerning payday loans. They are an excellent place to start if you are looking to learn more about securing a loan and avoiding fraudulent companies. Bad credit should not keep you from getting approval as long as you know that the interest may be high. However, if you pay on time and the total amount, you won’t have to pay more than you should as penalties. And you improve your credit score.

Rural Americans are more likely to have lower incomes and assets than urban residents https://slychi.com/rural-americans-are-more-likely-to-have-lower-incomes-and-assets-than-urban-residents/ Tue, 15 Mar 2022 02:52:09 +0000 https://slychi.com/rural-americans-are-more-likely-to-have-lower-incomes-and-assets-than-urban-residents/

A new brief released by the Employee Benefits Research Institute [EBRI] title “Understanding the financial differences between rural and urban Americans,” found that people living in rural areas were more likely to have lower incomes and assets than those living in urban areas.

However, when comparing Americans at the same income levels, the net worth of rural individuals was higher than that of urban individuals, except for those in the highest income group.

“Attitudes of rural Americans toward their finances and access to financial institutions and instruments may differ from those living in urban areas due to low population density, infrastructure differences such as lower availability of broadband Internet services and their experiences or exposure to various types of assets,” Craig Copeland, director of Wealth Benefits Research at EBRI, wrote in a statement.

“As a result, the types and levels of assets available to rural Americans are different, with home ownership and business assets being higher than the higher retirement account and ownership of stocks and mutual funds. placement among urban residents,” Copeland wrote.

According to the release, the EBRI Issue Brief examined the financial situation of Americans who live in urban and rural areas using the 2020 US Census Bureau Program Participation and Earnings Survey.

“Differences in ownership of retirement accounts, stocks and mutual funds persisted among workers at large employers and for unincorporated and independent businesses,” Copeland said. “The net result is that rural people seem to be missing out on certain financial assets that, over the long term, have provided much higher rates of return than many other investments. Other means of accessing financial markets may be necessary.

Additionally, Copeland concluded that rural business owners seem to have their assets heavily concentrated in their businesses, which might be needed to run their businesses.

“However, better asset diversification could help protect these people’s retirement prospects if something causes the business to shut down,” he said.

Generational wealth planning lawyers Portia Woods and her mother, Robin Woods, have claimed that black and brown communities are in a state of financial emergency and probably don’t even know it. However, the lawyers said in an email that their goal remains to help families protect and effectively pass on more of their hard-earned wealth.

“America’s racial wealth gap is huge and getting worse“, underlined the duo in the e-mail.

They noted that a study warned that without an answer, the median net worth of black Americans fall to zero by 2053.

“We focus on multi-generational planning with a focus on closing the racial wealth gap in our communities,” said Portia Wood.

She said Wood Legal Group, LLP has always been passionately focused on teaching Black, Latina, and LGBTQ communities to “protect, operate, and pass on their assets using the law of estates and trusts.”

Max Benz, founder and CEO of BankingGeek, added some key financial differences between rural and urban Americans.

“On the one hand, rural Americans are more likely to live in poverty than urban Americans,” Benz said.

He cited the most recent data from the US Census Bureau which said 17.3% of rural residents live in poverty, compared to 14.2% of urban residents.

“Rural Americans also tend to have less access to financial resources and opportunities,” Benz said. “For example, they are less likely to have a bank account or a credit rating and they are more likely to use alternative financial services like payday loans. This lack of access can make it difficult for rural Americans to build wealth or lift themselves out of poverty.

Dr. Robert R. Johnson, professor of finance at Creighton University’s Heider College of Business and co-author of “The Tools and Techniques of Investment Planning, Strategic Value Investing and Investment Banking for Dummies”, has proposed that urban Americans have a higher concentration of financial assets.

In contrast, Johnson said rural Americans possess a higher concentration of tangible assets.

“The difference in net worth between rural and urban Americans at the same income level can be explained by the fact that the cost of living is much higher in urban areas — especially housing,” Johnson said. “That is, more income is needed in urban areas to fund a given standard of living.”

“Urban Americans are more likely to be investors than savers, while the reverse is true for rural Americans. Moreover, much of urban America’s wealth is inherited wealth – in particular, land – which can result in higher net worth but lower income, all else being equal.

“Furthermore, the distribution of wealth between urban and rural Americans is radically different. In other words, the average wealth of urban and rural Americans may be different, but I have to believe that the medians are not very different.

“That’s because urban Americans’ means of wealth are heavily skewed by the fabulously wealthy. Simply put, there are more wealthy urban people and some with extremely high net worth than wealthy rural people,” said Johnson.
