A Banking Roundtable

Nov 3, 2011

President Obama just unveiled a new plan to help homeowners avoid foreclosure...but what other help is out there?

The state of Connecticut is working to help homeowners as well...sponsoring a mortgage assistance event  on Tuesday November 15.  

And, the Wall Street Journal says one local bank is “ahead of the industry” in helping financially troubled borrowers.

Still, though, millions of “underwater” Americans wait for help - and struggle to find answers from their big banks.

Today, Attorney General George Jepsen, Banking Commissioner Howard Pitkin, and Webster Bank CEO Jim Smith join us round the table to talk about mortgage assistance and modification.
