BOSTON, June 20, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- The Massachusetts Mortgage Bankers Association (MMBA) will visit Capitol Hill this week in Washington, D.C., as part of the Mortgage Bankers Association (MBA) National Advocacy Conference, to inform the Massachusetts Congressional Delegation of the most pressing issues facing the housing finance industry.
"Few things are more powerful than constituents coming to Washington, D.C. to discuss the issues they are most passionate about," said Debbie Sousa, Executive Director of the MMBA. "Housing finance reform is generating a lot of buzz on Capitol Hill already, and we plan to make our voices heard by educating key lawmakers about our proposal," Sousa said, noting that MA Sen. Elizabeth Warren has a leadership position on the Senate Banking Committee.
MBA's National Advocacy Conference, which runs from Tuesday, June 20th through Wednesday, June 21st, is an opportunity for MMBA's members to meet with the Massachusetts Congressional Delegation to discuss a variety of key issues, including the growing need for housing finance reform. Attendees will urge members to consider the MBA's housing finance reform proposal, GSE Reform: Creating a Sustainable, More Vibrant Secondary Mortgage Market.
"For far too long, the housing finance system has been hanging in limbo," Sousa said. "Through our meetings, we hope that our representatives, especially Senator Warren, will recognize the importance of a robust housing finance system and will be motivated to move forward on bipartisan legislation."
