Panel: Time Running Out for GSE Reform Legislation in Senate
January 10, 2014
If a GSE reform bill doesnt at least move out of committee even better, clear a vote on the Senate floor this year lawmakers and experts agreed this week that the window to cement a meaningful legislative solution to Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac is in danger of closing. Speaking at a Financial Services Roundtable Housing Policy Council forum on GSE reform, Sens. Bob Corker, R-TN, and Mark Warner, D-VA, said they would very much like to see a mark-up of their bill, the Housing Finance Reform and Taxpayer Protection Act, S. 1217, sooner rather than later.
