ABSTRACT
The article reports that the U.S. Federal Housing Finance Board reappointed 25 public interest directors (PIDs) to serve on the boards of the Federal Home Loan Banks for another 12 months. Terms of the PIDs were due to expire on January 1, 2007. FHFB Chairman Ronald Rosenfeld was apparently given clearance by the White House to break a freeze on further appointments after congressional Democrats threatened with a hearing on the Board's failure to meet its statutory duty.
