You could soon be able to protect your credit report for free in Georgia.
The Georgia Senate voted 51-0 on Thursday to give final approval to a bill that would prevent credit reporting agencies from charging customers to lock their credit reports. A locked or frozen credit report can’t be changed.
It currently costs customers up to $3 each time they want to lock or unlock their credit reports, according to state law.
The bill now goes to Gov. Nathan Deal for his signature or veto.
