    NEW YORK. - A sweeping credit card law that takes effect Monday has been widely anticipated by consumers who believe banks have been taking advantage of them for too long. The law was supposed to prevent banks from using tactics that put borrowers deeper into debt. Yet, it still allows loans and cards with crushing terms.

NEW YORK, N.Y. - It could be the beginning of the end of overdrawn accounts linked to debit cards.
     
Bank of America customers will soon be unable to spend more than they have in such accounts in a step that may become a common move ahead of new regulations limiting overdraft fees.
     
Rules set by the Federal Reserve that will ban banks from charging such fees, without first getting permission from the customer, are set to take effect July 1.
     
But Bank of America is going a step further than the regulations require. It will simply no longer allow debit card purchases to go through if there isn't enough money in the account.
     
For ATM transactions, customers who try to withdraw more than their balance will have to agree to pay a $35 overdraft fee before they can get the money.

    SPOKANE, Wash. - Initiative-1639 has been the root of controversy ever since supporters began asking for signatures.
