Northern & Central Louisiana Interfaith Denounce "Criminal" Interest

Northern & Central Louisiana Interfaith leaders and clergy, joined by Shreveport Mayor Cedric Glover, gathered on the State Office Building lawn to garner the support of local senators. Said Rev. Aaron Dobynes of Evergreen Baptist Church, "We have gathered here to urge our senators, Sen. (Greg) Tarver and Sen. (Sherri) Buffington to support this bill that says we need to reduce the kind of criminal interest that's being paid by many of these persons that have to secure payday loans."
