The run down is like this...most of the "Issues" 1-6 are constitutional amendments.
The basics of Issue 5 - capping the interest that payday "advance"/"loan" companies can charge; creates a database with information on who takes out payday loans and when they take them out. It also increases the max time you can take the loan out from 15 days (per payday advance company policy) to 30 days.
If you vote "Yes" you are agreeing that the interest rate should be capped.
If you vote "No" you are disagreeing that the interest rate should be capped.
Here is what is going on. You have a lot of people addicted to these "payday loans". You get charged $15 per $100 you barrow. For instance, you "barrow" $300, when you pay it back, you have to pay back $345. Right now, you have to pay this back every 2 wks. If a person comes in and takes one out every 2 wks, which trust me as a former employee in one of these payday advance companies, there are many many many people who do this every pay period, they are barrowing $300 every two weeks. So, if you have 26 bi-weekly period a year, that means a person is paying $1,170 in interest a year to always barrow $300.
This is the reason the payday advance companies are fighting hard against Issue 5. There are thousands of people in the state who are barrowing $300 every 2 weeks for 26 weeks a year.
