Posted: November 30, 2004

What:
Congresswoman Darlene Hooley (D-OR) will be at Portland State University to answer questions as Oregonians are provided free access to www.AnnualCreditReport.com, a Web site that will give consumers free access to their annual credit reports from all three consumer credit reporting companies for the first time.

PSU is providing computer and Internet access to all attendees who would like to download and print their free credit reports. This provides a great resource for college students around the nation, and many of PSU’s students will be on-hand to take advantage of this opportunity with U.S. Rep. Hooley.

When:
Wednesday, December 1, noon to 1 p.m.

Where:
PSU’s Smith Memorial Student Union, 1st Floor, Broadway Entrance (1825 S.W. Broadway)

Contact:
For more information call Joan Mooney, 202-225-5711.

Background:
Prior to December 1, interested consumers had to pay approximately $30 for copies of their credit history. However, as a result of the landmark consumer protection law (the FACT Act), championed by Congresswoman Hooley, all Oregonians can request free annual credit reports from all three credit bureaus starting December 1, 2004.
