Brown ‘Open to Figuring Out’ GSE Reform


The debate over housing finance reform appears to have new life as both Democrats and the next administration appear ready to take up the issue.

“I am very open to figuring out how we do this. I am just not sure where the [Trump] administration is,” said Sen. Sherrod Brown, D-Ohio., on Thursday while referencing comments Treasury Secretary-designate Steve Mnuchin made a day earlier.

Mnuchin said that the issue was on his top 10 list of things to deal with, pledging to “get it done reasonably fast.”
