There is a bill in Congress that challenges government efforts to end a form of discrimination in car loans. Car dealerships can finance car loans. The dealerships work with banks who determine the credit worthiness and suggested cost of the loan. The car dealership can legally add a "markup" to make profit on the loan. In practice the loans are discriminatory. Black and Latinos face a higher markup at the dealership despite their credit rating. In addition, the bank raises the cost of the loan it suggests to the car dealer based on race. Minorities are openly discriminated again in the current system.
In 2013, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau issued regulations at ending this discrimination. There is a bill in Congress aimed at ending these regulations and returning to the prior discriminatory practicing. The NAACP, the Urban League, the National Council of La Raza, and the U.S. Public Interest Research Gropu oppose this new legislation.
There are 166 sponsors of this Republican crafted bill. Sixty-Five of the sponsors are Democrats. Some of the names of the Democratic sponsors are surprising
