The Senate Banking Committee is scheduled to hold a confirmation hearing on February 14 for President Trump’s Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA) nominee, Mark Calabria. Dr. Calabria is currently serving as Vice President Mike Pence’s chief economist and was previously the director of financial regulation studies at the Cato Institute. The FHFA oversees Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, which – through a small assessment on their books of business – fund the national Housing Trust Fund (HTF), the first new program in a generation dedicated to building and preserving homes for the nation’s lowest-income people. The hearing will be held on February 14 at 10:00 a.m. ET in 538 Dirksen Senate Office Building.
