Washington, D.C. – The Bipartisan Policy Center (BPC) will host a timely discussion on reforming our nation’s housing finance system with Representatives Randy Neugebauer (R-TX) and John Delaney (D-MD), members of the Financial Services Committee, next Thursday, July 16, 2015. The conversation will be moderated by Nick Timiraos, national economics correspondent with The Wall Street Journal.
September marks the seventh anniversary of the government conservatorships of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. The discussion will focus on the possibility of Congress enacting comprehensive legislation this term, and the Federal Housing Finance Agency’s potential administrative steps, including expanding risk-sharing activities between GSEs and private investors, and developing a common securitization platform, to laying the foundation for reform.
In 2013, BPC’s Housing Commission released a plan for reforming our nation’s housing finance system. Join us for a follow-up conversation on this important topic.
