Well, maybe that's been fixed. "Fixed" if you're a bank, that is.
A bill that homeowners advocates warn will make it more difficult to challenge improper foreclosure attempts by big mortgage processors is awaiting President Barack Obama’s signature after it quietly zoomed through the Senate last week. The bill, passed without public debate...
"Zoomed" isn't the word for it.
The bill’s approval involved invocation of a special procedure. Democratic Senator Robert Casey, shepherding last-minute legislation on behalf of the Senate leadership, had the bill taken away from the Senate Judiciary committee, which hadn’t acted on it.
The full Senate then immediately passed the bill without debate, by unanimous consent.
One can argue the merits; the House has passed similar legislation a few times before, but it died in the Senate--until THIS time.
