In 1976, the Fed barred creditors from inquiring about race (except in the case of mortgages) to prevent discrimination. The problem was, it also prevented creditors from examining the impact of their lending policies and practices on certain groups. Now, creditors can collect personal information from applicants to check whether their lending practices are in compliance with the Equal Credit Opportunity Act. The new policy takes effect April 15. — Jenna Greene ONLINE FOR BUSH Theodore Ullyot has been named an associate counsel to President George W. Bush.
