Washington, D.C. – Today, the Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA) announced that it is seeking comment on a notice of proposed rulemaking that would amend several provisions of the Enterprise Regulatory Capital Framework (ERCF) for Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac (the Enterprises).
"As a safety and soundness regulator, FHFA monitors the housing finance market and evaluates the underlying risks to the Enterprises’ business operations," said FHFA Director Sandra L. Thompson. "The Enterprise Regulatory Capital Framework is a critical tool to responsibly manage those risks and will help ensure the Enterprises are positioned to fulfill their statutory mission in providing stability and ongoing assistance to the secondary mortgage market."
The proposed rule includes modifications of certain provisions of the ERCF related to guarantees on commingled securities, multifamily mortgage exposures secured by properties with government subsidies, derivatives and cleared transactions, and credit scores. These proposed amendments would clarify certain aspects of the ERCF and help to further align the ERCF with the risks faced by the Enterprises.
FHFA invites comments on the proposed rule within 60 days of its publication in the Federal Register. Comments on the proposed rule should be submitted electronically or via mail to the Federal Housing Finance Agency, Office of General Counsel, Attention: Comments/RIN 2590-AB27, 400 7th Street, S.W., Washington, D.C., 20219.
