Congressman Filner Calls for Stepped up Efforts to Curb Foreclosures

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Congressman Bob Filner signed onto a letter today calling for stepped up efforts to stem foreclosures.  In the letter to Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner, Congressman Filner, along with more than two dozen House members, criticized the lack of progress in curbing the number of home foreclosures and dealing with their impact on the economy.

The letter in part reads, the “failure to take effective actions to manage the avalanche of home foreclosures is one of the great public policy failings of our time.”
