SACRAMENTO -- Attorney General Kamala D. Harris released the following statement upon the announcement that parts of the California Homeowner Bill of Rights will be heard by a Legislative Conference Committee:

“There are more than 500,000 California homeowners in the foreclosure pipeline, and securing for them the protections of the Homeowner Bill of Rights is my central concern. I am sure these reforms will receive thoughtful attention and discussion in the Legislative Conference Committee which is why I support the Assembly Speaker and Senate President pro Tem’s decision to form it. I look forward to working with the Legislative leaders and members of the committee to bring transparency and fairness to our state’s mortgage and foreclosure process.”
