Hamilton Profiled in RTOHQ: The Magazine
June 9, 2009

HamiltonPartner Palmer C. Hamilton was recently profiled in an article in RTOHQ: The Magazine, a rent-to-own industry publication of the Association of Progressive Rental Organizations, the nonprofit trade association advocating and representing the rent-to-own industry before the U.S. Congress, the Internal Revenue Service, state legislatures, courts, media, and the public. The article, titled "The Lobbyists," describes Mr. Hamilton's work and unique approach as a lobbyist, as well as how he and the RTO lobbying team are working toward passage of the Consumer Rental-Purchase Agreement Act of 2009. The legislation would provide a federal standard of protection for consumers in the rent-to-own industry without preempting state statutes on the subject, as long as the state statutes did not mischaracterize the transactions as sales rather than leases.
