     ======
As you may know by now, the CA Homeowners Bill of Rights passed out of the Joint Committee on Wednesday morning!

ALL OUR EFFORTS MADE THIS BILL PASS! A staff member stopped one of our Occupy members in the hallway at the State Capitol in Sacramento on Monday to tell him that our OFF action (With OSD & ASD participation) in front of Senator Calderon's office on June 8 was the reason the bill was going to pass. The bill was destined to die in committee, but we turned it around! The attention we drew to the critical issue made the difference. What we do matters.  (Thanks Carlos, Michelle, Cathy, Suzanne, etc., etc.)

There are two bill numbers with the same language Senate: SB 900, Assembly: AB 278. The bill's language has been posted to the legislature's website and you can read it here.  Key provisions stayed in the bill thanks to your efforts:

    Prohibitions to dual tracking -- loan modifications must be evaluated and decided before any movement forward on foreclosures.
    Single point of contact requirements designed to end the banks' routine runaround.
    Private right of action, enabling homeowner to sue banks directly for wrongdoing.
    Big banks that signed the settlement agreement with the state's Attorneys General are NOT exempt from accountability for individual harm.
    Homeowners have recourse to stop a trustee sale if they reasonably suspect fraud.

Let's Push This One Over The TOP!

Multiple Occupy Movements across the state have rallied over the last month in a sustained effort to get a strong HomeOwners Bill of Rights with several provisions to protect homeowners against greedy bankster FRAUDclosure through the State legislature. On Monday the Bills finally make it to the floor. Remember the successful actions by OSD & ASD that got Vargas to step down from the Joint Committee early last month?

While these measures are less than we would have hoped, as witnessed by the bankster whining and protestations, (See link below) this is the most substantive set of bills in the nation.
