I hope the residents of Massapequa Park have deep pockets. From what I've read of the law, the language is so vague and subjective that the legal fees to respond to the lawsuits that are sure to follow, especially if fines are levied against banks who will go to court to fight the fines, will be astronomical.

On the plus side, though, thanks to the new law, a lot of foreclosed homes will be snapped up by all the lawyers who plan to move into Massapequa Park. Good job, folks.
