Legislative Updates from the Mortgage Action Alliance
Last week in the House, OMB Director and Acting Director of the CFPB Mick Mulvaney made two appearances on Capitol Hill before both the House Financial Services (HFSC) and the Senate Banking Committees (SBC). During the House gathering - and at MBA's urging, Rep. Brad Sherman (D-CA) asked Mulvaney about the need for clear, authoritative guidance from the CFPB. Yesterday, HFSC members Reps. Sean Duffy (R-WI) and Ed Perlmutter (D-CO) introduced legislation to address this key topic, the GUIDE Compliance Act (H.R. 5534).
This week in the Senate, HUD Secretary Ben Carson testified before the Senate Appropriations Subcommittee on Transportation, Housing and Urban Development on the 2019 HUD budget request, and the SBC held a hearing to consider the nomination of Seth Appleton to be Assistant HUD Secretary for Policy Development and Research.
