From the Desk of Christopher McCarthy, RAC NYSCAR Governmental Affairs Chair:

Credit reports may be off-limits in the near future for residential rentals.  New York A4681, a current bill being considered in the New York Assembly, relates to rental discrimination based upon consumer credit history; prohibits a person from refusing to rent or lease or otherwise to deny to or withhold from any person or group of persons housing accommodations because of the consumer credit history of such person or persons, or to represent that any housing accommodation is not available for rental or lease when in fact it is so available; defines consumer credit history.  Track it here.
