Immediate Past-Chair Mortgage Action Alliance Chair Amy Swaney, CMB and MBA's SVP of Legislative and Political Affairs, Bill Killmer discuss the importance of being an actively engaged member of the Mortgage Action Alliance.
Take Action: Continue to Support a Delay of TRID Enforcement
On October 7, 2015 the House of Representatives passed the Homebuyers Assistance Act (H.R. 3192). H.R. 3192 would help ensure smooth implementation of the new TILA-RESPA Integrated Disclosures (TRID) rules by providing a temporary legal safe harbor for lenders who make a good-faith effort to comply with the regulations through February 1, 2016. In the Senate, S. 1711 would provide a similar legal safe harbor through January 1, 2016. This bill has yet to be considered - however, language creating a TRID safe harbor was included in S.1484, the regulatory relief package passed by the Senate Banking Committee earlier this year.
