GOVERNOR'S VETO MESSAGE
A copy of the following communication was received and placed on
April 11, 2002
Speaker of the House
State Capitol Building
L O C A L
Dear Speaker Siegrist:
I hereby transmit House File 608, an act relating to the delinquency charges on
certain pre-computed consumer credit transactions.
At a time when predatory lending is on the rise, this legislation would be a benefit
to such lenders. It represents a risk to Iowa Consumers and a loss to the Iowa
economy. The added costs are born by the citizens of Iowa then realized by out-of-state
The Attorney General's Office supports the rejection of this bill as poor consumer
practice that would ultimately represent no benefit to the citizens and economy of our
state. In fact, he indicates that Iowans participating in these loan programs may find
repayment to be a strain and in the end, only compound their financial problems.
For the above reasons, I hereby respectfully disapprove House File 608.
Thomas J. Vilsack
