December 8, 2011

With Wall Street profits back, a new federal initiative should help residents on Main Street with their finances, a U.S. legislator says.
Democratic U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown addressed the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau’s (CFPB) “Know Before You Owe” initiative which should make credit card and mortgage terms easier to understand, would explain key prices, and would be written in plain language without legal jargon as well as be shorter in length. A prototype created by CFPB is two pages, much shorter than the industry average of 5,000 words.

His appeal stressed the county’s need.
The request is approximately $5 million more than the revenue in the Motor Vehicle and Gasoline Tax Fund for 2011.
“I know I’m not going to get it, but this is to reflect the need,” county Engineer Doug Reinhart told the Auglaize County Commissioners during his budget hearing on Wednesday. “I do this every year. It looks like I’m asking for the world, but we need it.”
