Mortgage Reform and Anti-Predatory Lending Act of 2007 +This bill imposes unnecessary regulations and exposes lenders to increased liability, which will have the net effect of making mortgage loans harder to get for many Americans. Although mortgage reform is necessary, HR 3915 fails to set clear guidelines for lending companies and opens the door for lawsuit abuse. “Nay” votes scored.

Native Hawaiian Government Reorganization Act of 2007 +This bill would provide a process for the reorganization of a Native Hawaiian governing body and reaffirm the “special political and legal relationship between the United States” and the governing body.

Cayetano, any preferential treatment that the native Hawaiian population enjoys runs contrary to the 15th Amendment’s protection against racial discrimination. “Nay” votes scored.
