IG: FHFA’s Supervision of Servicing Alignment Initiative Falls Short

The Federal Housing Finance Agency's oversight of a nearly three-year-old initiative designed to improve the performance of residential servicers working for Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac has "significant limitations" and is in dire need of supervision, according to a new report from the agency’s Inspector General.

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.
