03/05/2020 09:00 AM


A Statement from ACA International CEO Mark Neeb

“ACA International applauds the U.S. House for unanimously passing a bipartisan bill that will benefit our servicemembers in reference to debt collection communications. We support consumer protection laws designed to ensure that all servicemembers – and all others– are treated with respect, professionalism and are not exposed to deceptive or unfair practices as part of their interaction with accounts receivable management industry professionals. We are reviewing the legislation and look forward to hearing additional comments as it moves to the Senate Committee on Banking, Housing and Urban Affairs.”
