Congressmen Neugebauer, Delaney to discuss GSE reform

Bipartisan Policy Center hosts discussion on future of Fannie, Freddie

The Bipartisan Policy Center will host a timely discussion on reforming the nation’s housing finance system with U.S. Representatives Randy Neugebauer, R-Texas and and John Delaney, D-Md., members of the Financial Services Committee, on Thursday, July 16, 2015 at 1:30 p.m. ET.

The conversation will be moderated by Nick Timiraos, national economics correspondent with The Wall Street Journal.

September marks the seventh anniversary of the government conservatorships of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac.

The discussion will focus on the possibility of Congress enacting comprehensive legislation this term, and the Federal Housing Finance Agency’s potential administrative steps, including expanding risk-sharing activities between GSEs and private investors, and developing a common securitization platform, to laying the foundation for reform.

The event is open to the public and press. The event will be livestreamed here.
