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.
Important Call to Action
On Thursday, July 30th, the Senate passed a long term extension for the federal Highway Trust Fund that would partially fund transportation by extending a previous temporary increase in Fannie Mae's and Freddie Mac's guarantee fees ("g-fees"). Extending the length of this increase on g-fees will effectively prolong a tax on prospective homeowners and curtail consumers looking to refinance their mortgages. The House will begin work on their own version of a long-term highway reauthorization when they return from August recess, but in the meantime a 3 month extension that does NOT contain a g-fee provision will be in effect. We are encouraging all MAA members to contact their elected officials and let them know that a final transportation bill should NOT be paid for by raising costs for homeowners.
