GSE reform in a Biden administration would be a non-priority, while House Financial Services Committee Chairwoman Maxine Waters (D-CA), a long time opponent of reform, will almost certainly retain the position for next Congress.  It’s also worth noting that the current financial distress our country is navigating may further delay administrative reform.  While the mortgage market has yet to hit severe turbulence, the long-term prospectus on the industry varies.
