Housing Relief Bill on the Senate Floor

Hosted by

The Senate's bipartisan compromise on the housing crisis is up for debate. Connecticut Senator Chris Dodd says pressure from constituents is what forced the issue, and called today's debate a "major first step in the right direction." Home builders and mortgage companies are supporting the compromise, but consumer groups feel that "Capitol Hill has left them out on the curb." That's according to Victoria McGrane on the website Politico.com.
