GSE Shareholder Advocates Come Out Against Senate Reform Bill

New groups of disgruntled GSE junior shareholders have taken their demands for redress to the next level by rallying against the Senate’s pending bipartisan housing finance reform legislation. Earlier this month, the Coalition for Mortgage Security said it would campaign for legislation that protects the rights of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac investors. The group opposes the reform legislation fronted by Sens. Tim Johnson, D-SD, and Mike Crapo, R-ID, the chairman and ranking member, respectively, of the Senate Banking, Housing and Urban Affairs Committee.

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.
