Fannie Overseer Said to Plan Report on Single Bond Sales

Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac’s overseer may release a report as soon as next month on its goal of getting the government-backed U.S. mortgage giants to issue a single set of home-loan bonds, according to three people with knowledge of the matter.

The Federal Housing Finance Agency would then seek input from the public on its analysis, said the people, who asked not to be named because the plan is private. Fannie Mae guarantees more than $2.5 trillion of mortgage bonds, compared with about $1.5 trillion for Freddie Mac. The two were seized by the U.S. in 2008, and their futures remain uncertain.
