Maryland Governor Martin O'Malley used his state of the state speech to call for tighter restrictions on mortgage companies.

Speaking to a joint meeting of the general assembly, O'Malley called on the legislators to take action to stop home foreclosures. But O'Malley didn't convince Republicans like senator Alex Mooney of Frederick County.

O'Malley plans to present the details of his mortgage foreclosure bill later this week.
