WASHINGTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--SubscriberWise®, the nation's largest issuing consumer reporting agency for the communications industry and the leading provider of business rules and scoring technology in telecommunications, announced today that the company founder has personally reached out to the White House and members of Congress urging passage of the Freedom from Discrimination in Credit Act of 2015. According to SubscriberWise, passage of the bill would help to honor and respect the Orlando crime victims while increasing necessary protective provisions to existing ECOA categories that are long over-due.
“Following the unspeakable tragedy in Orlando and the perpetual bias against my LGBTQ sisters and brothers, I’ve once again called on the White House and Congress to demonstrate resolve and forever enshrine into U.S. federal law expanded provisions that explicitly and conspicuously prohibit discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity,” acknowledged David E. Howe, president of SubscriberWise. “Passage of the Freedom from Discrimination in Credit Act would not only further symbolize our nation’s disdain for bigotry and discrimination, it would also stand as an important and lasting tribute to our fellow citizens who were senselessly and brutally maimed and murdered in Orlando.
“On behalf of SubscriberWise, its nationwide member operators, contractors, vendors, and technology partners, and - in particular - its LGBTQ agents who leverage the technology everyday across this country, I urge members of Congress to muster a tiny fraction of the courage and strength demonstrated by the victims in Orlando and immediately pass this legislation at once.”
“I am Pulse Nightclub…we are all Pulse Nightclub,” declared Howe!

Today SubscriberWise is a risk management preferred-solutions provider for the National Cable Television Cooperative. The NCTC (www.nctconline.org) helps nearly 1000 members nationwide.
