Stand Up Missouri is a nonpartisan coalition dedicated to educating Missourians about their right to informed credit choices and to protecting their access to safe and affordable traditional installment loans (TILs). For over 100 years, Americans have relied on traditional installment loans as a regulated and responsible option for personal and household credit.
Especially in these times of economic uncertainty, it doesn’t make sense to eliminate access to the credit provided by these important loans. And yet Missourians’ access to TILs is being threatened by a ballot initiative currently being reviewed by the Missouri Supreme Court. If this initiative makes its way onto the ballot in November and passes into law, TILs will disappear from our state. Losing this vital credit option will hurt individual Missourians, families, and the state economy—and result in lost jobs and millions of dollars in lost revenue for small businesses.
Stand Up Missouri does not represent payday lending or payday interests. The coalition does not accept funding from any organization associated with payday lending and strictly represents the interests of traditional consumer installment lenders.
