Today’s MH Market Spotlight Report –


Hensarling Applauds Mulvaney’s Call for Review of CFPB Practices, Payday Lending Rule

House Financial Services Committee Chairman Jeb Hensarling (R-TX) issued the following statement applauding the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau’s (CFPB) announcements that it is undertaking a sweeping review of agency actions and practices, and that it would revisit a controversial rule relating to payday lenders which was issued by the former director before he left office.

I want to take this opportunity to commend Acting Director Mulvaney on his recent call for evidence of the CFPB’s track record under its previous leadership. As I have said for years, the CFPB has an important mission, and it is capable of great good.  But when it acts without accountability or transparency, it is also capable of great harm.  The federal government must root out fraud and other illegal acts perpetrated by those engaged in interstate commerce, but Congress must also protect the American people from overreach at the CFPB, which infringes on consumer choice and economic freedom under the guise of consumer protection.”

MH Finance Earthquake Coming? Trump Admin Master Stroke? Defanging CFPB, Manufactured Housing Impact?

Mulvaney said after our report linked above during the “Schumer Shutdown” presser that it was his intent to follow the law on the CFPB.



H.R. 2954, the Home Mortgage Disclosure Adjustment Act, sponsored by Rep. Tom Emmer (R-MN), amends the Home Mortgage Disclosure Act of 1975 to exempt from maintenance of mortgage loan records and disclosure requirements depository institutions that have originated in each of the two preceding calendar years, fewer than 500 closed-end mortgage loans, and fewer than 500 open-end lines of credit.


This bill passed 243-184.


H.R. 3326, the World Bank Accountability Act of 2017, sponsored by Rep. Andy Barr (R-KY), would withhold a portion of future appropriations for the World Bank until the Treasury Department reports that the World Bank has undertaken reforms to fight corruption, strengthen management accountability and undermine violent extremism.


This bill passed 237-184


H.R. 4279, the Expanding Investment Opportunities Act, sponsored by Rep. Trey Hollingsworth (R-IN), directs the SEC to amend its rules to enable closed-end funds that meet certain requirements to be considered “well-known seasoned issuers” and to conform the filing and offering regulations for closed-end funds to those of traditional operating companies. This simplifies the registration process and enables these funds to more easily provide information to investors.


This bill passed 418-2.


H.R. 4258, the Family Self Sufficiency Act, sponsored by Reps. Sean Duffy (R-WI) and Emanuel Cleaver (D-MO), relieves the regulatory burden that currently exists to administer the Family Self-Sufficiency (FSS) program by combining two separate Department of Housing & Urban Development’s (HUD) programs into one. The bill also broadens supportive services provided to participants and allows tenants who currently reside in privately-owned properties with HUD project-based assistance to participate in the program.


This bill passed 412-5.


H.R. 770, the American Innovation $1 Coin Act, sponsored by Rep. James Himes (D-CT), creates a program under which the United States Mint would produce a series of one-dollar coins celebrating the innovative capacity of the United States. The front of the coins would have an image “symbolic of Liberty,” and the design on the reverse would be “an image or images emblematic of one of a significant innovation, an innovator or pioneer, or a group of innovators.”


This bill passed by voice vote.
