Observers Divine Director Watt’s FHFA Policy Plans Amid Meetings

Industry observers expect the new regulator of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac will ease up on plans to shrink the GSEs’ footprint but so far the recently installed Federal Housing Finance Agency head isn’t saying much. Since Mel Watt was sworn into a five-year term as FHFA director on Jan. 6, the former North Carolina Democrat congressman has made no official public appearances or policy statements, except for canned comments attributed to him in routine Finance Agency announcements.

Poll

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.
