Senate Banking Committee Set to Consider GSE Bill End of April

The Senate Banking Committee recently announced that it will mark up its bipartisan bill overhauling the nation’s housing finance system on April 29th.

The proposal released in March by Chairman Tim Johnson (D-SD) and Ranking Member Mike Crapo (R-ID) would replace government-controlled Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac with a new housing finance system, expanding on a proposal put forth by Sens. Bob Corker (R-TN) and Mark Warner (D-VA).

Regulators Propose Minimum Standards for AMCs

Six housing related agencies issued a proposal that would implement minimum requirements for state registration and supervision of appraisal management companies (AMCs). The Office of the Comptroller of the Currency, Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System, Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, Federal Housing Finance Agency and National Credit Union Administration are trying to set regulations around AMCs, which serve as an intermediary between appraisers and lenders and provides appraisal management services.

MHI’s Summer Meeting provides an excellent mid-year opportunity for members to network, exchange information, stay current on housing trends, and learn about issues of concern to the industry.

One highlight of the 2014 MHI Summer meeting will be an afternoon-long education session on Monday, June 9th –Community Compliance: A Review of CFPB Rules & Manufactured Housing. MHI will have leading experts on the CFPB rules review the regulations and talk about how they specifically impact home sales and manufactured home community operations. Attendance to this Monday afternoon education event will be open to interested individuals beyond the MHI membership who are involved in home sales and land-lease community programs such as lease-to-own and in-house financing. Interested state association members (non-direct dues paying MHI members) are invited to register to attend the CFPB education session and Monday evening reception. A special registration rate for this session and the Monday evening reception only is available through the registration link above.

Another exciting feature of the MHI Summer meeting will be the attendance of the newly selected Administrator of the Manufactured Housing Program at HUD. Pamela Beck Danner has been invited to speak to MHI members during the Tuesday morning June 10th breakfast and general session. This will be a first opportunity for many in the industry to hear from Pamela first hand about her first days, weeks and months as the program administrator and about her goals and plans for the future.

In addition, various MHI boards, divisions and committees will meet to discuss and debate issues important to their members.
