Washington, D.C. – Today, the Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA)
announced plans to re-propose the entire regulation on capital requirements
(Capital Rule) for Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac (the Enterprises) sometime in
“The 2018 Capital Rule was
proposed before FHFA began the process of retaining capital at the Enterprises
as a first step toward ending the conservatorships. In fairness to all
interested parties, the comments submitted during the previous rulemaking were
submitted under a different set of assumptions about the future of the
Enterprises. During the process of the rulemaking, important issues were
identified that will be addressed in the re-proposal,” said FHFA Director Mark
“The Capital Rule is one of
the most important rules I will issue as Director. This rule will be
re-proposed and finalized within a timeline fully consistent with ending the
conservatorships. Requiring the Enterprises to build capital that can properly
support their risk ensures that taxpayers will never be on the hook again
during an economic downturn.”
