MURFREESBORO, Tenn.?Crye-Leike Senior Broker Consultant Scott Boles recently attended the National Association of Realtors midyear legislative meetings in Washington D.C. and met with congressional representatives on Capitol Hill to talk about real estate industry issues.

Issues of critical importance which were addressed during the meetings were creating affordable housing opportunities, protecting consumers in real estate transactions, and enacting health insurance legislation.  Great progress was made, including passage of The Federal Housing Finance Reform Act, H.R. 1427, by the House of Representatives, which establishes stronger regulatory control over the Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac government sponsored entities.  Also passed by the House of Representatives was the Industrial Bank Holding Company Act, H.R. 698, which maintains and strengthens the separation of banking and commerce.
