Nevada’s senators urge mortgage relief for victims
Nevada’s two U.S. senators want mortgage payment relief for family members of victims of the Las Vegas massacre as they deal with medical and funeral costs.
Republican Sen. Dean Heller and Democratic Sen. Catherine Cortez Masto sent a letter Thursday to lenders and regulators asking them to ease the burdens on those affected by the Oct. 1 shooting at the Route 91 Harvest Festival.
The senators asked lenders not to initiate or finalize foreclosures and to work with the homeowners to come up with plans like loan modifications if they miss payments. Heller and Cortez Masto say the families should not have to worry about financial situations that exacerbate the “tremendous stress caused by this senseless tragedy.”
