On this episode of INSIGHTS, host Dan Boylan and a panel of guests will talk about Hawaii home foreclosures, with a focus on Act 48, the state's new foreclosure law. The legislation allows homeowners to mediate with mortgage lenders in person before property foreclosure can take place. What does Act 48 mean for Hawaii homeowners, families, lenders and our judicial system?

Scheduled guests include: Kim Harman, policy director at Faith Action for Community Equity (FACE); Keali'i Lopez, director of the Hawaii Department of Commerce and Consumer Affairs (DCCA); Kehau Filimoe'atu, board member of Hawaiian Community Assets (HCA) and homeowner Wayne Salas.

This conversation was recorded on July 21, 2011 in the PBS Hawaii studio. Insights on PBS Hawaii is presented on Thursdays at 7:30.
