Late Thursday evening, the Senate voted 60-38 to pass an amendment introduced by Senators Robert Menendez (D-NJ) and Johnny Isakson (R-GA). The amendment would restore the FHA and GSE Loan Limits to the levels prior to September 30.

The amendment is included in the Treasury, Housing and Urban Development Appropriations bill that also passed the Senate. While this is a victory for REALTORS®, this amendment has a long way to go to be approved in the House or during a conference between the House and Senate.
