Floor Schedule and Procedure:

Under a Rule (1 bill):

  1. H.Res. 548 – Rule providing for Consideration of H.R. 1941– Coastal and Marine Economies Protection Act (Rep. Cunningham – Natural Resources), H.R. 205 – Protecting and Securing Florida’s Coastline Act of 2019 (Rep. Rooney – Natural Resources), and H.R. 1146 – Arctic Cultural and Coastal Plain Protection Act (Rep. Huffman – Natural Resources).

Suspensions (5 bills):

  1. H.R. 2852Homebuyer Assistance Act of 2019, as amended (Rep. Sherman – Financial Services)

This bill changes the property appraisal requirements for mortgages backed by the Federal Housing Administration (FHA) by allowing licensed appraisers to conduct appraisals for such mortgages, rather than only certified appraisers. This would bring FHA standards in line with those set by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. This bill also sets minimum requirements for education specific to FHA appraisals that appraisers must undergo to be eligible to conduct FHA appraisals.

  1. H.R. 3620Strategy and Investment in Rural Housing Preservation Act of 2019, as amended (Rep. Clay – Financial Services)

This bill permanently authorizes the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) Multifamily Housing Preservation and Revitalization (MPR) Program, requires USDA to come up with a plan for preservation of rural multifamily housing backed by USDA loans, and establishes an advisory committee to advise USDA in implementing this plan. It also includes legislation from Rep. Vicente Gonzalez that adds the Rural Housing Voucher program to the list of covered housing programs under the Violence Against Women Act.

  1. H.R. 1690Safe Housing for Families Act of 2019, as amended (Rep. Garcia (IL) – Financial Services)

This bill authorizes $300 million over three years to support a new requirement to install and maintain carbon monoxide detectors in every housing unit and in any location with a combustion-fueled appliance assisted under Section 202, Section 811, Public Housing, and Section 8 in federally assisted housing.

  1. H.R. 281Ensuring Diverse Leadership Act of 2019, as amended (Rep. Beatty – Financial Services)

This bill requires the Federal Reserve Banks to interview at least one individual reflective of gender diversity and at least one reflective of racial or ethnic diversity when appointing Federal Reserve Bank presidents.

  1. H.R. 241 – Bank Service Company Examination Coordination Act, as amended (Rep. Williams (TX) – Financial Services)

This bill amends the Bank Service Company Act (BSCA) by enhancing the coordination of state banking agencies with federal banking agencies in regulating and examining the activities of bank service companies. It also allows for the sharing of information related to examinations and regulations between federal and state agencies related to banks’ technology service providers (TSPs).
