    This has got to be one of the most stupid pieces of legistlation. In this new law, the loan for these so-called improvements does not carry forward with the homeowner if the property is sold. It is married to the property. What are the most popular types of loans in low-income neighborhoods? Why, government backed loans, of course. So what happens if one of these properties with one of these energy loans is foreclosed upon? The government will have to take it over, along with the rest of the house.
