Legislative Updates from the Mortgage Action Alliance
Earlier today, the Senate Banking Committee approved three nominees: Brian Montgomery for FHA Commissioner, Robert Hunter Kurtz for Assistant Secretary for Public and Indian Housing at HUD, and David Ryder as Director of the US Mint. These individuals were previously approved by the committee, but were not confirmed by the full Senate before the end of the year.
This morning the House Financial Services Committee began a markup of 17 bills, including a number of mortgage-related proposals. In our next newsletter, we will update you on outcomes and developments. Both the House and the Senate returned to session yesterday, with a deadline of Friday to pass a spending bill to avert a government shutdown. It appears that Congress will rely on another short-term spending bill to keep the government open.
