A full room of community members at the Miller Park Pavilion overwhelmingly supported capping payday interest rates in Bloomington at 36%. Several community and (IPA) Illinois Peoples’s Action members spoke about why they supported Cap36 in Bloomington.
Dawn Dannenbring asked the council what else the community had to do to get action on the proposal. She said that 140 community members showed up last week at the work session at Bloomington City Hall in support of the ordinance. She than asked the supporters in the room tonight to raise their hands, well over 90% of the people in attendance raised their hands.
The next meeting regarding Cap36 will be October 24, 2011 at Bloomington City Hall.
