Last Thursday, a new Bill (H.R. 3622) was introduced to the Financial Services
Committee. This bill would shorten the time period that negative information can report on a person’s credit report.
Currently, late payments, collections, charge-offs, and other adverse credit can remain in your credit file for seven years. This bill, if passed, would reduce that to four years.
Is four years long enough for consumers to have their credit scores docked for a mistake or hardship of the past?
Is four years long enough for creditors to have leverage in collecting past due funds?
The bill was sponsored by House Representative Rashida Tlaib, Michigan on July 5, 2019.
Thank you to Credit Repair Services, LLC for bringing this to my attention.
