Bipartisan Policy Center to Host Breakfast Discussion on Qualified Residential Mortgage Rule Next Wednesday

WASHINGTON, D.C. – September 27, 2013 – (RealEstateRama) — The Bipartisan Policy Center (BPC) Housing Commission will host a discussion on the proposed qualified residential mortgage rule next Wednesday, October 2, 2013 at 9:00AM EDT.

Recently, six federal regulators proposed a revised qualified residential mortgage (QRM) rule that was largely welcomed by industry and public interest groups. This rule was viewed as an improvement on an earlier draft, seen as likely to unnecessarily restrict access to credit for a large segment of the population.

BPC Housing Commissioner Rob Couch will be joined by Michael Calhoun, President of the Center for Responsible Lending, and Debra Still, President & CEO of Pulte Mortgage and Chairman of the Mortgage Bankers Association, on the panel. BPC Housing Commissioner Nic Retsinas will moderate the discussion.

The event is open to the press but space is limited. Press interested in attending should RSVP to ">.
