8/6/2020 - Consumer Education Subcommittee meeting, 12 p.m. MINUTES
8/5/2020 - Meeting AGENDA
The purpose of the Consumer Protection Committee is to address issues affecting Maryland residents as a result of the COVID-19 crisis and issues of economic inequality and insecurity. For example, we are concerned about an avalanche of debt collection cases being filed against consumers unable to pay bills during the pandemic once the moratorium is lifted. Additionally, we want to determine how best to make consumers aware of resources available to them and educate them on how to avoid debt-related scams and instead connect consumers with legitimate trained financial counselors to help them address their debt situation. Finally, we want to propose short-term and longer-term policy solutions that the Court and General Assembly can consider to improve outcomes for financially struggling households.
