It is good to see that the banks are stepping up in their adherence to their obligations under the settlement. At the same time, while substantial progress has been made, itâ€™s clear that more needs to be done. More borrower relief is essential to prevent foreclosures and to help stabilize the housing market. We look forward to more principal reductions and other meaningful relief for consumers.â€ť more »
