ICBA to Policymakers: Lock in Positive Housing Reforms

Sept. 06, 2018 — With the conservatorship of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac nearing its 10-year anniversary, ICBA and other groups called on policymakers to cement certain housing-finance reforms implemented over the past decade.

In a joint letter, the groups urged Congress and the Trump administration to make permanent pricing parity across lenders, the transfer of risk off taxpayer shoulders, a new infrastructure for the single-family secondary market, and support for strong and sustained liquidity in the multifamily rental market.

“Only with the certainty that comes from these reforms and the end of conservatorship will the private market be able to establish a more permanent and reliable presence in housing finance,” the groups wrote.

ICBA last year released a white paper with its principles for reforming the government-sponsored enterprises.
