Yesterday, the Senate voted 67-32 to invoke cloture and begin debate on a broad bipartisan regulatory relief package. The bill, The Economic Growth, Regulatory Relief and Consumer Protection Act (S. 2155) contains several MBA-supported priorities including transitional authority to originate (SAFE Act amendments), consumer protections tied to PACE loans, as well as TRID and HMDA fixes. Contents of a potential "Manager's Amendment" and timing of the final Senate vote on passage are still developing.
