Fighting foreclosure [November 16]

Governor Tim Kaine announced on Thursday that he is forming a panel to help borrowers faced with subprime mortgage loans, the Washington Post reports today. “Many of Virginia’s working families are facing significant difficulty as mortgage rates adjust,” Kaine said. “My goal is to have policies in place that will help Virginians before they are faced with foreclosure.” The foreclosure rate in Virginia is more than double what it was a year ago, the Post reports.

Tim Kaine will form a panel to help Virginians avoid the pitfalls of risky mortgage loans.
