Senator Jeff Klein, (D-Bronx/ Westchester) is featured in a national story from CBS news on the ripple effects of the foreclosure crisis. The piece focuses on the Bronx-based Marsh family, whose home became unlivable last spring due to damage caused by a fire at an adjacent foreclosed home. They are now trapped in limbo (and are still paying the mortgage) as the bank who owns the foreclosed property has refused the responsibility to maintain and clean in up. 

Senator Klein talks about his law he passed to address this issue.
