More than a decade after Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac were placed into conservatorship, significant legislative reform of the government-sponsored enterprises appears unlikely in the near-term. Yet—following an unprecedented degree of attention in 2019 from the administration—proponents of housing finance reform may have reason to be optimistic.

Join the American Action Forum for a panel discussion of housing finance reform in America. Topics will include:

• The Departments of Treasury and Housing and Urban Development’s reform roadmap.

• The Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA) and Treasury’s actions to allow for the recapitalization of Fannie and Freddie.

• Additional reform initiatives by the administration, and what must be achieved going forward.

Speakers Include:

Dr. Mark Calabria, Director, Federal Housing Finance Agency

Dr. Norbert Michel, Director, Center for Data Analysis, Heritage Foundation

Dr. Michael Stegman, Senior Fellow, Housing Finance Program, Milken Institute Center for Financial Markets

Thomas Wade, Director, Financial Services Policy, American Action Forum

Donna Borak, Senior Economics Writer, CNN (moderator)
