The amendment, offered by Rep. Judy Biggert (R-IL), stated that the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) should work in conjunction with the Federal Reserve Board (Board) to develop and issue a new rule to address simplifying the mortgage process within six months of the passage of HR 1728. This is a victory for the National Association of Mortgage Brokers as the association had requested that HUD withdraw the RESPA Rule and work together with the Board to simplify the mortgage process in our comment letters, calls to action, and communications to Congress. HR 1728 is tentatively scheduled to be voted upon by the full House of Representatives on May 7, 2009. For more information, visit www.namb.org.
