New credit card laws will take effect Monday designed to help consumers from getting into deeper debt. Card issuers can only increase interest rates for a limited number of reasons and must give at least 45 days notice. Young people must be at least 21-years-old to get a credit card or must have an adult to co-sign if they want their own credit card.
Consumer advocates favor the sweeping changes but creditors say it will limit the availability of credit cards at a time when the country needs to spend more to stimulate the economy.
We'll have details on what the changes mean for you. . .tonight on KSBY News at 6.
