US House Notices North Carolina's Progressive Leadership

Reuters is reporting that a bipartisan group of US House members are looking at crafting a national law using NC's payday-lending legislation as a model.

"A bipartisan group of congressional members are working with consumer and industry groups in an attempt to fashion legislation patterned after North Carolina's law," [Alabama Republican Rep. Spencer] Bachus said. "If a consensus can be reached, a mark-up will be held."
