Legislative Updates from the Mortgage Action Alliance
Both the House and Senate are in recess this week for the traditional President's Day holiday week of in-district/state work periods. Last week, congressional leaders finalized a spending bill compromise on seven appropriations bills that included a revised funding mix for nine Cabinet departments, including HUD, and dozens of other agencies, through September 30. President Trump signed the legislation, which removes the immediate threat of another government shutdown. And the Senate Banking Committee held a nomination hearing for Mark Calabria to be the next Director of the Federal Housing Finance Agency.
