Financial Regulatory Overhaul/Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. S 3217 (Roll Call 135)
During consideration of the Financial Regulatory Overhaul bill, an effort was made
to include government-sponsored financial institutions, such as Fannie Mae and Freddie
Mac in the regulations, particularly with regard to limiting their size. ACU opposes these
government-sponsored institutions, and supported the amendment to limit their size.
However, on May 6, 2010, the Senate rejected this effort by a vote of 35-59.
