On Thursday, the Senate Judiciary Committee considered and passed S. 2428, the “False Claims Amendment Act,” by a vote of 15 – 7. The bill, introduced this summer by Senators Chuck Grassley (R-IA) and Patrick Leahy (D-VT), would have made significant changes to the False Claims Act (FCA) – and the statute’s definition of “materiality” – that would have disrupted FHA/VA/RHS program lending.

As a direct result of consistent MBA advocacy, an Amendment in the Nature of a Substitute (AINS) to S. 2428 was the text considered by the Judiciary Committee today. The amended proposal included substantial changes to the original bill that will protect lenders from being exposed to lengthy litigation and monetary penalties. MBA’s letter supporting the changes incorporated into the underlying text can be found in the full statement.

ICYMI: Treasury & FHFA Suspend Key Limits on GSE Activities

Late yesterday, the U.S. Department of Treasury (Treasury) and the Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA) announced the suspension of certain provisions of the Preferred Stock Purchase Agreements (PSPAs), which govern the conservatorship of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac (the GSEs). Previously, artificial limits had been placed on the GSE acquisitions of loans secured by second homes and investment properties, loans with multiple risk factors, lenders’ use of the cash windows, and multifamily lending volumes caps imposed in the PSPAs. This suspension effectively removes these problematic limits.

ICYMI: Late last Thursday, Senators Chuck Grassley (R-IA) and Patrick Leahy (D-VT) filed an Amendment (Number 2435) for consideration during floor debate on H.R. 3684, the House-passed vehicle for the Senate’s negotiated Bipartisan Infrastructure Framework (BIF). Amendment 2435, as written, would make substantive and retroactive definitional changes to the False Claims Act (FCA) without the benefit of congressional hearings, testimony, or sufficient legal analysis to determine its impact on housing credit availability – as well as an increased risk of MBA members being exposed to lengthy litigation and monetary penalties.
At roughly 6:30 p.m. (EDT) last night, Senator Grassley made an attempt to request unanimous consent to have a floor vote held on Amendment 2435. Senator Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ) objected to Senator Grassley’s request on behalf of Senate Democrats. The exclusion of Amendment 2435 from the bipartisan Senate infrastructure deal is a big short-term win for our residential MBA members.

ICYMI: MBA led a coalition of housing trades and consumer advocates that sent a letter to the lead Senate negotiators working on the Bipartisan Infrastructure Framework (BIF) urging them not to use GSE guarantee fees (“g-fees”) as a source of funding offsets. As the Senate and House consider the BIF package, the letter emphasized to lawmakers that homeownership must not be used as the nation’s “piggybank” to cover the cost of unrelated federal programs. If enacted, this would impose/extend a significant tax increase on all homeowners.

Contact your Representative/Senators TODAY and urge them to not use g-fees as a “pay-for” for either the BIF or the upcoming House/Senate budget resolutions: https://bit.ly/3eYFLjt.

CALL TO ACTION: Tell Congress to not use GSE guarantee fees (“g-fees”) to fund the Bipartisan Infrastructure Framework (BIF). If enacted, this would impose/extend a significant tax increase on all homeowners! Take action now: https://bit.ly/3eYFLjt. Mortgage Action Alliance - MAA

ICYMI: Today, FHFA announced the elimination of the GSEs’ adverse market refinance fee effective August 1, 2021. MBA President & CEO, Bob Broeksmit, CMB, released a statement applauding FHFA Acting Director Sandra Thompson for this decision to eliminate the 50-basis point fee that was suddenly announced last August and placed an undue burden on our industry and the consumers we serve.

CALL TO ACTION - Tell Your Representatives: Support the Nationwide Use of RON

Representatives Madeleine Dean (D-PA) and Kelly Armstrong (R-ND) have recently introduced an updated bipartisan version of the SECURE Notarization Act of 2021, now enrolled as H.R. 3962 for the 117th Congress. The bill was a key ask during MBA’s recent National Advocacy Conference. This bipartisan legislation represents a companion bill to S. 1625 in the Senate and would allow notaries in all states to perform RON transactions.

Click the link below to contact your Representatives TODAY and urge them to support this legislation by co-sponsoring H.R. 3962, the SECURE Notarization Act of 2021.

ICYMI - MAA Update: Last month, MBA joined with several other financial trade associations to successfully advocate for reconsideration of the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency's (OCC) Community Reinvestment Act (CRA) Final Rule. This action has created a welcome opportunity for the OCC to consider additional stakeholder input, evaluate issues and important questions that have been raised regarding changes to the CRA, and join efforts with the other two banking agencies (the Fed and FDIC) on a uniform CRA rewrite going forward.

On a more troubling note, MBA has been closely engaged in concurrent conversations at the federal and state levels regarding the potential expansion of the CRA to cover non-depository institutions, including Independent Mortgage Banks (IMBs) — and in some cases credit unions and life insurance companies.

MBA President & CEO Bob Broeksmit, CMB, recently addressed this issue in a blog post detailing the various reasons a proposed expansion of the CRA to include IMBs would be inappropriate. Additionally, MBA released this policy brief to further emphasize why such an expansion of the CRA would be misguided and counterproductive.
