January 27, 2020 — Letter

The 85 undersigned consumer, civil rights, labor, and community organizations write to express our support for HR 3621, the Comprehensive Credit Reporting Enhancement, Disclosure, Innovation, and Transparency Act of 2020 (Comprehensive CREDIT Act of 2020). Credit reports and credit scores play a critical role in the economic lives of Americans. They are the gatekeeper for affordable credit, insurance, rental housing, and sometimes unfortunately even a job. Yet they suffer from unacceptable rates of inaccuracy. This bill would enact a sea change that would make the American credit reporting system more accurate and fairer to consumers.
