Take that to the bank

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.
