Washington, D.C. — In 2009, Congress passed and President Barack Obama signed the Credit Card Accountability, Responsibility, and Disclosure Act, or Credit CARD Act. This law established new consumer protections for credit cards and gift cards and limited credit card marketing on college campuses. Please join the Center for American Progress for a discussion about the Credit CARD Act’s accomplishments and steps that policymakers should take to address regulatory gaps that consumers face in the financial system today.
