Details are scarce, but another government plan to help underwater homeowners should be announced in the next few weeks, Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner said at a Senate Banking Committee hearing today.

According to Geithner, the Federal Housing Finance Agency is examining a set of programs that would make it much easier for people to refinance at today's record-low rates, including people who owe more than their homes are worth.
