Tester responds to State of the Union

Senator applauds push for housing finance reform

(U.S. SENATE) – Senator Jon Tester tonight released the following statement in response to the President’s State of the Union address:

“I was pleased the President laid out a vision to strengthen our economy and create jobs. I’m particularly glad he vowed to push forward with housing finance reform. Improving our housing finance system will better support the 30-year mortgage and protect taxpayers while letting more Americans realize the American Dream. I look forward to working with the President and lawmakers from both sides of the aisle to get this bipartisan initiative across the finish line.”
