WASHINGTON, D.C. – November 21, 2013 – (RealEstateRama) — Rob Couch, a member of the Bipartisan Policy Center (BPC) Housing Commission, will testify before the Senate Committee on Banking, Housing, and Urban Affairs at a hearing tomorrow on housing finance reform.
Couch’s testimony will focus on the range of tools a secondary housing market regulator will need to be effective and provide oversight of a future housing finance system.
He will draw from recommendations from BPC’s report, Housing America’s Future: New Directions for National Policy. Earlier this year, BPC proposed a new housing finance system that calls for a far greater role for the private sector, a continued but limited role for the federal government, the elimination of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, access to safe and affordable mortgages for all eligible borrowers, and for the Federal Housing Administration to improve efficiency and avoid crowd-out of private capital.
