ABA Calls for GSE Reform Bill to Eliminate FHLBank Conflicts

While the housing finance reform legislation authored by Sens. Tim Johnson, D-SD, and Mike Crapo, R-ID, recognizes the “distinct nature and role of the Federal Home Loan Banks,” concern remains that the bill’s treatment of FHLBank regulation within the proposed regulator could lead to a conflict of interest that impedes the 12 Banks and their members, according to the American Bankers Association. An ABA memo to the members of the Senate Banking, Housing and Urban Affairs Committee suggested that lawmakers leave regulation of the FHLBanks with either an independent agency or strengthen the bill’s proposed regulatory firewalls.

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.
