Hud’s Donovan Says GSE Reform Plan Unlikely in Next Few Weeks

April 26 (Bloomberg) -- President Barack Obama’s administration doesn’t have a specific timetable for completing a proposal for winding down Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac and bringing private capital back into the housing market, Housing and Urban Development Secretary Shaun Donovan said today.

“We have continued to work on refining potential proposals for the GSEs,” Donovan told lawmakers at a Senate Banking Committee hearing in Washington. “We’ve been encouraged to see bipartisan legislative proposals.”

The administration has made “significant” strides toward bringing private capital back into the housing market without action from Congress, Donovan said.
