Koch noted that she represents much of Wright County, which has seen up to 3 percent of its homes go into foreclosure this year, leading the state.
Nevertheless, the bill is not good for the state as a whole, she said.
"We need to focus on the 97 percent who are still paying their mortgages," she said. "This bill introduces risk for all lenders. It will either tighten credit or increase costs."
Koch said she believes passing the bill will make it more difficult to sell many houses that are up for sale.
How many of Senator Koch's bills benefit the state as a whole? How many only a small portion of the population?
Perhaps the Senator doesn't really read any Wright County newspapers. 9 full pages of foreclosures, 152 total.
One year to "right the ship" does not seem to be overly generous. If it saves a significant portion of foreclosures, it's a good deal.
The housing industry in Wright County has been severely impacted by the "mortgage crisis". Senator Koch wants to do nothing about it...
Another glowing example of leadership.
