Banks of Iowa Tells Dividend of 23 Cents The board of directors of Banks of Iowa, Inc., declared a regular quarterly dividend of 24 cents Garrett Outlines Areas of Confusion in Credit Law By Tom Fruehling One of the most controversial measures passed by the recent Iowa legislature was (lie Iowa Consumer Credit Code, which became effective July 1. Asst. Ally. Gen. Julian Gar- rett, in charge of interpreting and enforcing the code for the state, attempted to explain aspects of it to the Cedar Rapids Consumer Credit Assn. fuesday night at the Monlrose. liarrelt listed three areas of he code that have caused the most confusion so far. It is now illegal, he said, to give consumers an early pay- ment discount larger than the maximum finance charge. Lack of Knowledge Also, Garrett 'pointed out, :here appears to. be a lack of knowledge on raising the re- interest to its new 18 percent ceiling.' Any change in rates, Garrett noted, must be set out in a writ- en agreement. And two notices must be given to customers be- ore any such rate jump is af- 'ected. The third area on which Gar- spent much time concerns he "cure a provision of he code which Cedar Rapids at-: lorney Fred Fisher said bothers tlie most people locally. This notice is sent to con- sumers in a credit transaction, explaining that the account is delinquent and providing means of correcting the obligation. After Due Date Garrett said the notice cannot be delivered until 10 days after the payment is due. Then a 20- day waiting period is in effect. Only then can prosecution or repossession be initiated. The state official emphasized, however, that the cure notice is applicable only in consumer credit transactions. He defined such a transaction as involving a seller regularly engaged in credit, an individual customer rather than a busi- ness, a finance charge or more than four installments and less than Bugs in Code Garrett admitted that there are bugs in the code and even ie can not yet interpret all the technicalities of the law. When a member of the audi- ence asked him, for instance, what could be done when a car buyer quits making payments and then strips the automobile, arrett said, "I think that's gonna be a big problem."
