A trio of Democratic lawmakers are again calling on bank regulators to disclose “critically important” information behind the scuttled Independent Foreclosure Review. Now they are requesting that the Federal Reserve and the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency provide this information by no later than the end of the year.

Two huge settlements with the biggest U.S. banks — dubbed the National Mortgage Settlement and the Independent Foreclosure Review — involved millions of wronged homeowners thrust into foreclosure. But that’s not enough to convince Wall Street Journal editorial board member Mary Kissel.

The states with the top five dollar amounts for checks cashed or deposited are — not surprisingly — some of the hardest hit of the foreclosure crisis: California ($452,917,548); Florida ($306,412,612); Arizoan ($127,842,971); Michigan ($108,540,951); and Georgia ($106,882,789).

“The bank processing the checks has told us that the cash rate exceeds that of other consumer settlements that they have been involved with,” the OCC spokesman said. “Agencies will continue to monitor the rate at which checks are cashed or deposited and will determine whether additional outreach is required.”
