September 14, 2017 — Letter

The undersigned consumer, civil rights, labor, and community organizations strongly urge you to support and co-sponsor the Comprehensive Consumer Credit Reporting Reform Act of 2017. 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 single-handedly enact a sea change that would make the American credit reporting system more accurate and fair to consumers.
