At a tele-news-conference today, Pedro Morillas, CALPIRG's Legislative advocate, was joined by Chairman of the CA Assembly Banking and Finance Committee Pedro Nava who explained that the [Obama-backed] Congressional proposal to establish a Consumer Financial Protection Agency would also allow state attorneys general to once again vigorously defend the public against unfair financial practices. That authority had been drastically restricted by federal agency preemption rulings prior to the crisis.

At a tele-news-conference today, Pedro Morillas, CALPIRG’s Legislative advocate, was joined by Chairman of the CA Assembly Banking and Finance Committee Pedro Nava who explained that the [Obama-backed] Congressional proposal to establish a Consumer Financial Protection Agency would also allow state attorneys general to once again vigorously defend the public against unfair financial practices.

If enacted, it would consolidate all consumer protection activities involving over 20 laws and at least 7 agencies into one agency only responsible for consumer protection, while also redefining federal law as a floor not ceiling of protection and re-establishing the right of state attorneys general to enforce federal financial laws. “We have an agency to keep toasters from exploding, but we don’t have one to keep credit cards and mortgages from exploding,” concluded Pedro Morillas of CALPIRG -30- CALPIRG is a non profit consumer group dedicated to standing up to powerful interests on behalf of Californians’ health and wellbeing.

AB 1160 requires that mortgages are written in the same language they are negotiated in. Loan documents are difficult to decipher even if you can read the language they are printed in. Consumers cannot be expected to make an informed decision about a financial product without understanding the documents the terms are written on. “This policy committee was a huge hurdle for these bills, and the fact that all three made it out is a good indication that the senate is serious about reforming a broken market,” said Morillas.

"It's ironic that Governor Brown would propose taking money from people struggling to pay off mortgage debt because he's struggling to pay off the state's debts," said CALPIRG legislative director, Pedro Morillas.

Pedro Morillas, CalPIRG spokesman, said consumer protections need to be strengthened, but he did not propose specific legislation.
"Consumers' information is their own," Morillas said.
...
Companies' failure to respond to requests for information can frustrate consumers, but is not necessarily illegal, Morillas noted.
State law requires compliance only by businesses that share personal information for direct marketing purposes.
CalPIRG does not know how many of the 20 firms that failed to respond to its survey were legally obligated to do so.
"While the current law is a good first step toward educating consumers about how their information is shared, these problems the report uncovered indicate that more needs to be done," Morillas said.
