Plan B

Continuing her very different vision of Fannie and Freddie, FHFA Acting Director Thompson today has released a new strategic plan for the agency emphasizing the importance of both equitable and sustainable housing finance.  No specific questions are posed in a request for public comment, but many comments are sure to press the agency to go still further to require even more of Fannie, Freddie, and the FHLBs not only on the new equity mission, but also on the climate-risk mitigation objectives also outlined today for the first time.
