Talks Senate Bill 602
The Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA) issued a letter of concern to the California State Legislature regarding Senate Bill 602 (Monning-D, Carmel), which would allow the California Earthquake Authority (CEA) to make loans to property owners for seismic retrofits.

This lending mechanism included in SB 602 is similar to the Property Assessed Clean Energy (PACE) loan programs which have been adopted by many local governments in California. The PACE programs can be used for energy efficiency upgrades or retrofits such as solar, HVAC systems, and water efficiency systems. The super-priority liens associated with the PACE programs, have caused problems for consumers who are looking to refinance or sell their home. Because of the aggressive sales tactics and lack of adequate disclosures or other consumer protections, homeowners are finding out that when they are trying to refinance or sell they must first pay the balance of the PACE loan.
