Experts: No Chance of Advancing GSE Reform in Remaining Congress

When lawmakers return from their five-week August recess next week, House and Senate members will face a lengthy agenda with just a short period of time to get it done. Conspicuously absent from the Congressional to-do list is housing finance reform. With approximately 12 scheduled legislative days before the Nov. 4 midterm elections, industry observers note that lawmakers won’t get to some things until they return for the lame duck session, while other bills will fade away as the clock runs out.

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.
