FHFA Issues Final Rule to Clip GSE Golden Parachute Payments

The Federal Housing Finance Agency last week issued regulations that clamp down on “golden parachute” severance payments to departing GSE executives.

After the November elections, how long will it take for a new Congress and White House to pass GSE reform legislation?

I’m confident a bill will be passed the first year.


2 to 3 years. GSE reform is complicated.


Sadly it won’t happen in a Clinton or Trump first term.


Not in my lifetime.
