Industry Representatives to Testify at California Hearing
Several people will be testifying in front of the Senate Committee on Banking and Financial Institutions in California today. Among them are Joe Looney, COO & GC at RapidAdvance, who will be speaking on behalf of the Small Business Finance Association, and Katherine Fisher, Partner at Hudson Cook LLP, who will be speaking on behalf of the Commercial Finance Coalition.
At issue is SB 1235, a bill that would require providers of commercial financing to provide disclosures about the cost of that financing to the recipients of the financing.
Industry analysts believe the bill could have implications not just for small business lending but also for factoring and merchant cash advance.
