Chile’s Senate will work with the government to introduce legislation that would regulate the maximum interest rate credit card companies can charge, the Senate said in a statement posted on its website yesterday.
Introduced in part by Senate Economic Committee President Eugenio Tuma, the proposal would complement a bill already under discussion in Congress that would lower the maximum rate banks can charge on some consumer loans, the Senate said. Senators haven’t yet defined a maximum rate for credit cards.
