WASHINGTON, D.C. (WLFI) — Indiana Senator Joe Donnelly is working to protect soldiers and their families from abusive financial practices.

Donnelly helped lead 48 other Senators in urging the Administration not to abandon its duty to protect service members and their families under the Military Lending Act.

This comes after Donnelly expressed concern last week with the Administration's move to suspend Military Lending Act examinations.

In a letter Donnelly and the Senators called on Consumer Financial Protection Bureau's Director Mick Mulvaney not to halt military lending checks.

"The administration has talked about suspending financial protections for our service members, I can't think of a worse idea, what we want to do is be there for our service members," said Donnelly. 

Donnelly said setting military families up for success should be a top priority.
