administration official tells HuffPost that the White House has 'concerns' about the bill.

Challenging foreclosures could become more difficult for homeowners if the president signs a bill that passed through the Senate last week. The little-noticed bill comes at a time when the validity of foreclosure proceedings across the nation has been called into question.


The House passed the bill in April, and its brisk journey through the Senate has drawn scant attention, Reuters reports. If signed into law, it would require courts to accept certain documents that have been notarized out of state, streamlining foreclosure proceedings and stripping homeowners of one legal method of challenging a foreclosure. The legislation would come just as a foreclosure validity crisis is mounting: GMAC, JPMorgan Chase and Bank of America have admitted to not properly reviewing some of their foreclosure documents.


The foreclosure controversies that have emerged in recent weeks throw doubts on the larger foreclosure system. A non-bank entity, Mortgage Electronic Registration Systems, has been initiating foreclosures, the Washington Post reports, exercising an authority that judges have ruled it does not have. In response to the mounting scandal, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) called on Tuesday for an investigation into foreclosure fraud. "This is a very big deal," she told HuffPost.


Ohio Secretary of State Jennifer Brunner told Reuters the timing of the bill's passage was "suspicious," implying that mortgage companies might have engaged in behind-the-scenes lobbying.

    Now it sounds like Obama is going to do a pocket veto.

    We can go to the polls and change both houses so these ridiculous and damaging bills can be reversed before they do any more harm.

    The question is not whether it's legal or not, the issue is that it is not signed into law or policy. Had he signed it, it would have been legal as were other laws signed when President Bush enjoyed a Repbublican majority. But the real point is that he DID NOT sign it

    They suceeded by excluding the GOP from voting, the gerneral puvlic & C-SPAN. This is what Obama must have ment by transparancy, honesty & open government.

    It should be obvious by now that the dems do what ever they want..they sneakily took over congress in 05 and officially in 07. The dems do not care about the ppl...only themselves..Pelosi said we would have to wait till the health bill passes to know what is in it..if that is not brazen, i don't know what is...

    Your right. They flaunted the laws of the land in the passed. Why start obeying the laws now?

    Closed door back alley sessions excluding the GOP, the public & C-SPAN are normal operating proceedures for these guys.

    The Constitutione is nothing but a floor mat for them to wipe their feet on.

    For the rest of us...we'll just have to wait till the bill is passed to see what's in it.

    Sleezy dark back alley tactics bribing lobyists to get bills passed is how this Administration has been operating. They have no plans to obey the Constitution halfway through the first term.

    he may sign a bill you don't like (he didn't actually in this case) but how is that unconstitutional? That is how our form of democracy works.
