Panel: Time Running Out for GSE Reform Legislation in Senate

If a GSE reform bill doesn’t at least move out of committee – even better, clear a vote on the Senate floor this year – lawmakers and experts agreed this week that the window to cement a meaningful legislative solution to Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac is in danger of closing. Speaking at a Financial Services Roundtable Housing Policy Council forum on GSE reform, Sens. Bob Corker, R-TN, and Mark Warner, D-VA, said they would very much like to see a mark-up of their bill, the Housing Finance Reform and Taxpayer Protection Act, S. 1217, sooner rather than later.

HUD has announced a 25 basis point cut in FHA premiums, which is slated to take effect in late January. Is your lending shop for or against a cut in FHA premiums?

For. It should help lending volumes.
Against. The private MI sector should take on this risk, not the government.
Too early to say.
I believe the new White House may scuttle the idea so it doesn’t matter.
