• As chair of the US Senate Committee on Banking, Housing, and Urban Affairs, Democratic Senator Sherrod Brown will focus on housing issues and the provision of housing to middle and lower-class communities. He is expected to investigate issues including redlining and prevention of abusive lending.
  • There are early reports suggesting that Senator Brown may also back the creation of a government-supported credit reporting agency that would operate as an alternative to private companies who issue credit scores.
  • It is unlikely that a major infrastructure bill can be passed through the process of reconciliation, which means that it would have to be passed by a bipartisan vote in Congress. What’s more, any substantial infrastructure bill is likely to require tax increases. Potential tax policy changes could include increases of the corporate tax rate and changes to regulations regarding the taxation of offshore companies.
