CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) - A nonprofit group reviewing Nevada's attempt to help resolve pending foreclosures is being asked for nearly $1 million to access records related to the negotiations between banks and homeowners.

The Las Vegas Sun reports Civil Rights for Seniors have been billed $940,000 to review thousands of pages of documents related to the program.

Foreclosure Mediation Program attorney Alicia Johnson says the money is needed to cover the costs for redacting personal information about homeowners in the almost 600,000 documents
requested by the group.

Civil Right for Seniors attorney Phil Olsen says the documents are needed to help determine which banks are not cooperating in the foreclosure program. He said the documents should only have information that is already public through property records but not
private financial information.
