Oklahoma, of course.
Attorney General Scott Pruitt protested that the national settlement against the banking titans — Wells Fargo, Citigroup, GMAC, JPMorgan Chase and Bank of America — had morphed into an Obama administration overreach for a regulatory overhaul.
Instead, Pruitt cobbled the state’s own settlement with the banks, ensuring $18.6 million for Oklahoma. Compare that to what the New York Observer reports could be more than $1.5 billion for Nevada alone.
Proponents of the 49-state settlement say it will provide money for legal aid services, refinancing for homeowners, foreclosure mitigation programs and the like.
