New: Fact Sheet on MAAPL’s Amendments to S.1981 ( DOC | PDF )

MAAPL has learned that last summer’s bill to strip foreclosed homeowners of their constitutional right to sue to regain their home is back. The Massachusetts Senate will vote on S.1981, An Act Clearing Title to Foreclosed Propertiesthis Thursday, July 30th. This bad bill must be stopped. We did that last summer, and we can do it again!

Please spread the word and participate in our Senate Call-In Days Against S.1981 on July 29th and 30th!

Please Call Your State Senator NOW:

Ask them to…

  • Oppose S#1981: An Act Clearing Title to Foreclosed Properties as written:
    • It slams the window shut on right to sue and
    • Strips foreclosed homeowners of constitutional right to regain their property
  • Accept any MAAPL-sponsored amendments proposed

We can beat this bad bill, but we must act fast! Please do your part and call your Senator today!

If you don’t know who your state Senator is, go to WhereDoIVoteMA.com, and enter your address. When the screen displays your voting information, scroll down to “Your elected officials are” and find your state Senator’s name there.

Then you can call the State House switchboard at 617-722-2000, press 2, then 0 and ask to be transferred to your Senator’s office.

Thank you for taking action–Your call matters!
