Pat Quinn has signed a new law he says will protect consumers from payday lenders.&nbsp; Quinn signed the law Monday.&nbsp; It requires lenders be licensed by the state Department of Financial and Professional Regulation or be charged with a felony. Right now the agency has licensed 522 payday lenders.&nbsp; The new law also protects consumers who are trapped in high-interest loans from having to pay back the debts, allowing such loans to be declared null and void.
