Proposition 209 protects Arizonans suffering from emergency medical debt by curbing predatory debt collection practices.
No Arizona family should lose their home or car due to medical emergencies or accidents, or be trapped into unending debt by unfair interest rates on medical care.
In Arizona, interest rates of medical debt can increase by as much as 10% per year, every year. Families can lose their homes, cars, or have their wages garnished by predatory debt collectors – even if they’ve done everything right.
Proposition 209, the Predatory Debt Collection Protection Act fixes these problems by limiting the interest rate on medical debt to no more than 3%, protecting more assets from being sold to pay off debt collectors, and ensuring hard-working Arizonans keep more of their bank accounts and wages.
In July of 2022, the Predatory Debt Collection Protection Act submitted a record breaking amount of signatures in order to qualify for the ballot.
Arizonans deserve to be able to live comfortably, without the fear of an accident or illness bulldozing our life accomplishments. Vote YES to protect Arizona families and our future!
