The Minnesota House has unanimously approved tough new protections for homeowners facing foreclosure.
The Homeowners Bill of Rights legislation passed Sunday afternoon on a vote of 123-0. Among other things, it would ban the practice of “dual tracking,” where banks move ahead with foreclosure proceedings even while talking with homeowners about working out a payment plan.
The bill also sets rules the banks must follow to keep homeowners informed about their options, and gives homeowners the right to take their lenders to court to stop a foreclosure.
A Duluth native who just barely lost Virginia's GOP gubernatorial primary said that politicians have not gone far enough in condemning the left for violence during a rally of white nationalists in Charlottesville. "I think that the left is going to try to use this as an excuse to crack down on conservative free speech," said Corey Stewart. "I think they're going to try to use this as an excuse to remove more historical monuments."
