House Passes Bill Rescinding FHFA Pricing Changes

The House today passed HFSC Member Davidson’s (D-OH) bill overturning the FHFA’s changes to the Enterprise’s pricing framework by a vote of 230-189 mostly along party lines, with fourteen Democrats voting for the bill.  The bill stands little chance of advancing in the Senate and the White House today released a statement of policy strongly opposing it.  Rep. Boebert (R-CO) submitted an amendment requiring the GAO study mandated by the bill to be made publicly available online, which was agreed upon by a voice vote.
