The Suburban Times-
Monday the U.S. House of Representatives passed S. 2393, the Foreclosure Relief and Extension for Servicemembers Act of 2015, to extend foreclosure protection for military homeowners from 90 days to a one year period until January 1, 2018.
Rep. Stephen Fincher (TN-08), Rep. Steve Stivers (OH-15), and Heck filed a House companion to S. 2393 (H.R. 4252) on December 16, 2015, and applauded the passage before April 1, when servicemembers would have been first affected by the time crunch.
“Readjusting to civilian life from active duty can be difficult for many of our vets,” Congressman Fincher said. “It is tremendously important to allow our veterans more time to readjust to life at home and get on their feet financially. It’s the least we can do for those who willingly risk their lives every day to protect the freedoms we hold dear.”
