  Frank seeks to broaden mortgage program - The Boston Globe
Representative Barney Frank, a Newton Democrat set to become the chairman of the House Financial Services Committee in January, said he will aggressively push legislation to ease current restrictions on the amount of a mortgage that can be held by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, two private mortgage companies chartered by the federal government.
Frank said he will use his power as chairman to seek a change in the law to correlate the mortgage cap to the price of housing in an area, instead of a flat limit that now applies to all areas of the country.
Frank noted that other housing programs, such as Section 8 housing for the poor, are weighted to accommodate the dramatically different costs of housing in different areas.
