The Federal Housing Finance Agency Tuesday announced that it is extending the deadline for stakeholders to provide input on the mortgage guarantee fees charged by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac.

FHFA Director Mel Watt suspended the original plan put in place by his predecessor Ed Demarco, that raised guarantee fees, and has taken a policy stance that aims to support the housing market rather than reducing the governments presence in housing finance.
