Protecting Youth and Promoting Safe Sports Equipment
Through hearings in the Senate and working with the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) and Consumer Products Safety Commission (CPSC), I have been leading the call to improve standards for youth football helmets and to look for ways to prevent concussions in youth sports. I have been pushing the FTC to investigate false and misleading claims by youth athletic equipment makers, and have also called on the CPSC to develop new standards for testing the safety of football helmets.

Closing Loopholes For Predatory Lenders
New Mexico passed strict rules to crack down on predatory payday lending, but some unscrupulous vendors have openly flaunted state law by moving their operations online. That's why I helped introduce the Stopping Abuse and Fraud in Electronic (SAFE) Lending Act. The SAFE Lending Act would crack down on the worst practices of the online payday lending industry and give states more power to protect consumers from predatory loans.
