FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

MONTGOMERY / WEINSTEIN “DEED THEFT BILL” PASSES LEGISLATURE AND AWAITS SIGNATURE OF THE GOVERNOR

Senator Montgomery's "Deed Theft Bill" (S1688/A5615 - Weinstein) passed the Senate and now awaits the Governor's signature. This legislation would strengthen and expand upon the Home Equity Theft Act of 2006 ("HETPA") by providing greater protections for owners of homes that are either in default or in foreclosure. It also strengthens laws regulating distressed property "consultants" who provide services to prevent property loss. 

Senator Jim Tedisco (R,C,I-REF-Glenville), Assemblyman Robert Smullen and Assemblyman Brian Miller today welcomed Cornell Cooperative Extension 4-H Program high school students from Poland, Dolgeville, and Old Forge to the state Capitol.

"The 4-H Program is a tremendous program that offers young people hands-on learning opportunities that help them grow into caring, contributing and responsible members of society. It was a pleasure to join my colleagues and meet with some great young people who will be the future leaders of tomorrow," said Senator Tedisco.
