Montana's Congressman, Denny Rehberg, today released the following statements following the House's passage of the Credit Cardholders' Bill of Rights Act in the House of Representatives.
"It's time to stop punishing consumers for the deceptive and unfair practices of some major credit card providers. Credit cards have been one of the most common consumer complaints my office receives from Montanans. This bill looks out for their interests. While folks have no problem paying interest and fees that are fairly assessed, the current system has not been fair."
Included in the legislation by the U.S. Senate was a provision to restore Second Amendment Rights to federally controlled National Parks and National Wildlife Refuges.
"Americans shouldn't lose their Constitutional rights when they visit a national park or wildlife refuge and I want to thank the Senate for adding this long overdue provision. But as Thomas Jefferson observed, the price of freedom is eternal vigilance. That's why it's vital Congress continues to stand up for the Second Amendment by opposing bills like H.R. 45 which would, among other things, create onerous federal requirements for gun ownership and establish a national database to track gun owners."
