Quinn signs 2 laws to help Illinois homeowners

August 2, 2010 (CHICAGO) One law creates funding to protect homeowners from foreclosure. The Save Our Neighborhoods Act will give grants to community groups to help connect struggling homeowners with foreclosure prevention programs.

Another bill signed by Quinn will boost affordable housing development across Illinois. The governor says it will mean more construction jobs all over the state.

"Housing often times is the key way to getting an economy back on track, and we're gonna work hard on this to make sure we get jobs in Illinois," Quinn said.

The governor also signed a bill which extends property tax exemptions for veterans.
