Gov. Mary Fallin vetoed a bill on Friday that will have produced financing having a 204 per cent interest rate that is annual.
In her own veto message, Fallin had written that the bill, which reflects a nationwide push from the payday financing industry for comparable legislation, would produce a high-interest item without limiting usage of other cash advance products.
