HUD Task Force to Tackle Excessive Regulation

Filed in Codes and Regulations, Multifamily by on May 15, 2017 3 Comments

Following up on President Trump’s recent directives designed to ease the burden of onerous and conflicting federal regulations, HUD today announced it is forming a task force to identify agency regulations that should repealed, replaced or modified – and get a better handle on the price tags, including record-keeping costs, associated with each one.

HUD is taking this action in accordance with Executive Orders 13771, “Reducing Regulation and Controlling Regulatory Costs,” and 13777, “Enforcing the Regulatory Reform Agenda.”

 Of particular interest to the agency are rules that:

  • Eliminate jobs or inhibit job creation
  • Are outdated, unnecessary or ineffective
  • Impose costs that exceed benefits;
  • Creates serious inconsistencies or otherwise interfere with regulatory reform initiatives and policies
  • Are the result of other directives that have been rescinded or substantially modified
  • Can be modified, streamlined or eliminated with technology
  • Duplicate or conflict with requirements of another federal agency

NAHB will submit comments by June 14. Members wishing to offer feedback as part of NAHB’s overall comments should contact Michelle Kitchen at 202-266-8352.

    Get rid of minimum property standards for new homes. Built to codes exceeds MPS

    Get rid of new HMDA additional data requirements. Burdensome to lenders and not necessary. Huge privacy concerns.
