January 24, 2023 — Letter

NCLC, along with the Center for Economic Integrity (CEI), the William E. Morris Institute for Justice, and Wildfire, sent a letter to the new Arizona Attorney General urging her to rescind Opinion Letter 122-005 (R22-011) regarding Earned Wage Access Products, which was adopted on December 18, 2022. The letter explains that the opinion is not legally sound and is overbroad. Additionally, it may carve a potentially large loophole in Arizona’s strong anti-predatory lending laws.
