Sen. Franken wants new federal debt collector law

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — Debt collection practices that target the wrong person or seek money from people who have paid up are behind Minnesota Sen. Al Franken's latest bill.

Franken planned to detail his federal legislation Monday at the State Capitol. He is expected to formally introduce it later in the week.

He was to appear with two Democratic legislators who have pushed for new debt collection regulations at the state level.
