Take Action With the Mortgage Action Alliance
In This Section
Speak directly with your members of Congress, state legislators and federal regulators about the impact of proposed legislation or regulations with the Mortgage Action Alliance, Inc.® (MAA). This voluntary, non-partisan and free nationwide grassroots lobbying network of real estate finance industry professionals, affiliated with the Mortgage Bankers Association (MBA), is dedicated to strengthening the industry's voice and lobbying power in Washington, DC and state capitals across America.
Get involved with MAA to play an active role in how laws and regulations that affect the industry and consumers are created and carried out by lobbying and building relationships with policymakers. It only takes a moment to get started, and you do not have to be a member of MBA to enroll.
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: Share Your Story!
We are encouraging MAA members to utilize our "Share Your Story" Call to Action. This Call to Action provides a platform with which to introduce yourself to your elected officials and offer to be a resource when they are considering housing finance legislation. Introducing yourself, even by email, is a great way to become an even stronger advocate for our industry.
Legislative Updates from the Mortgage Action Alliance
Last week, Dr. Ben Carson moved one step closer to taking the reins at HUD when the Senate Banking Committee unanimously approved his nomination to serve as its next secretary. This morning, Senate Finance Committee Republicans took the atypical step of approving Steve Mnuchin to serve as the next Treasury Secretary by themselves -- after the panel's Democrats boycotted a planned committee vote yesterday. And tomorrow, the Senate Budget and Homeland Security/Governmental Affairs Committees are both expected to vote on Rep. Mick Mulvaney's nomination to become the next OMB director. Full Senate votes for these nominees have not yet been scheduled.
