Legislative Updates from the Mortgage Action Alliance
The House and Senate are both in recess until October 15, while MAA members from around the country continue to meet with their Members of Congress to discuss important industry issues back home. Last week, the Senate overwhelmingly passed a Continuing Resolution (CR) to help avoid a government shutdown and fund the federal government through November 21, 2019. Importantly, the CR also included an extension of the National Flood Insurance Program. Also last week, MBA signed on to a coalition letter in support of H.R. 4351, the Yes In My Backyard (YIMBY) Act. And MISMO issued draft language to help lenders and other parties comply with a new requirement included in the recently passed Taxpayer First Act.
