Letter: USMI Joins Broad Coalition Opposing Use of G-Fees To Fund Highway Bill

(July 23, 2015) This week, USMI joined a broad coalition of nine other housing groups to send a letter to Senate leadership opposing the use of the credit risk guarantee fees (g-fees) charged by the housing finance enterprises, Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, as a source of funding for the extension of federal transportation programs.  The letter states: “whenever Congress has considered using g-fees to cover the cost of programs unrelated to housing, our members have united to emphatically let Congress know that homeownership cannot, and must not, be used as the nation’s piggybank.”
