Take Action With the Mortgage Action Alliance
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, President Trump formally submitted the Administration's budget blueprint for the next fiscal year, of which MBA has prepared an in-depth analysis for members. While specific funding requests won't follow until later this spring, the blueprint proposes significant cuts to a wide range of domestic programs including a 13 percent reduction in the HUD budget. Going forward, Congress will consider the budget in parts and may accept, decline, or modify each section. Already, top Republicans and Democrats in Congress have expressed reservations or outright opposition to many of the budget's recommendations.
