From the NY Times: Deal Is Closer for a U.S. Plan on Mortgage Relief

With a deadline looming on Monday for state officials to sign onto a landmark multibillion-dollar settlement to address foreclosure abuses, the Obama administration is close to winning support from crucial states that would significantly expand the breadth of the deal.

The biggest remaining holdout, California, has returned to the negotiating table ... in the last few days, differences have narrowed in negotiations that one participant described as round the clock, with California officials in direct communication with bank representatives for the first time in months. ... Officials involved in the negotiations cautioned that broader state support could still be days away.
I expect most states (if not all) to join the settlement.
