CRL Statement on Representative Watt's Nomination to Lead Housing Agency

DURHAM, NC--(Marketwired - October 31, 2013) - CRL remains a strong supporter of Congressman Watt to head the Federal Housing Finance Agency. Rep. Watt is eminently qualified to run the agency and help put the housing market on the right path. We are deeply disappointed with today's outcome and urge the Senate to reconsider this important nomination.
