Additionally, a provision is repealed allowing traditional installment loan lenders to charge, in addition to any other contractual fees, a convenience fee or surcharge for payments made by a debit or credit card. Moreover, a provision is repealed requiring that any traditional installment loan lender who prevails against a political subdivision in an action shall receive its actually incurred costs, including attorney fees, from such political subdivision.
