McCune Davis recognized by U.S. Defense Department
STATE CAPITOL, PHOENIX – Rep. Debbie McCune Davis, D-Phoenix (District 14), has been awarded a certificate of appreciation from the U.S. Department of Defense for her leadership on military issues.
McCune Davis this year sponsored HB 2381, a bill that protects military service members from predatory lenders.
“Please accept our appreciation and that of the service members and families residing in your state for your dedicated effort towards improving their quality of life,” said Edward Kringer, director of State Liaison and Educational Opportunity in the Office of the U.S. Under Secretary of Defense.
The bill aligns Arizona law with federal requirements to protect military families from auto-title lenders by enforcing a maximum 36 percent interest rate.
McCune Davis said she was honored to receive the recognition for her work.
“Our military service men and women put their lives on the line every day to protect our country,” McCune Davis said. “This is one small battle we can fight for them.”
