make sure lenders don't issue more than the $500 limit allowed by state law.
The payday loan businesses argue
that the state is trying to create the database by regulation after the
Legislature rejected a bill to do it last spring. The suit also contends the
database is discriminatory because it doesn't apply to banks and online
