26 Jun: Gill: Identity Theft Victims Can’t Be Denied Credit

TRENTON – The Senate today approved a measure, sponsored by Senator Nia H. Gill, that would make it illegal for creditors to deny credit to a person solely because that individual was a victim of identity theft.

“Victims of identity theft shouldn’t have to endure further injustice by being subjected to bad credit ratings,” said Senator Gill, Chair of the Senate Commerce Committee. “If their credit is otherwise in good standing, they should not be subjected to delays or denied credit simply because they were victims of identity theft.”
