Providence American: Whitehouse Bill to Protect Servicemembers and Veterans from Foreclosure Signed into Law
Washington, DC - Today, President Donald Trump signed into law Senator Sheldon Whitehouse's (D-RI) bill to extend vital foreclosure protection to servicemembers, veterans, and their families. Whitehouse's legislation, which was included as an amendment in the 2018 defense authorization bill, extends through 2019 the one-year grace period protecting servicemembers leaving active duty from foreclosure.
“The men and women of our armed forces ought to have a shot to regain their financial footing when they return home,” said Whitehouse. “Extending this important protection recognizes their noble service to our country. I'm proud my legislation was signed into law today.”
