Senate Bill 1666- Online Publishing of Foreclosure Notices….Still A Bad Idea!

Now granted this story was from a few years ago, but the same language regarding online publishing is in this year’s version of reform, 1666…

TAMPA, Fla. — Two state lawmakers want home foreclosure notices to go online – not in your local newspaper. A law firm in the Bay area stands to make big bucks off the switch, but that firm is under investigation by the Florida attorney general.

Even if you don’t read them, foreclosure notices show up in most local papers multiple times each week. However, State Sen. Steve Wise (R-Jacksonville) and Rep. Dennis Baxley (R-Ocala) want to move those legal notices to the digital world with two bills filed at the state capitol.

Rep. Baxley told 10 News, “Newspapers need to be aware they’re in the information age and compete for these opportunities…I think it’s one step forward to unclog the whole foreclosure pipeline.”

The speed of the foreclosure process is just one reason the Florida Press Association is lobbying against the bills. The FPA’s President & CEO Dean Ridings said, “I question if the public is served by making it easier to foreclose. We need to be careful about speeding up the process.”
