President Biden is wasting no time and is expected to sign a flurry of executive orders, one of which will probably be a further extension of the foreclosure moratorium.
The head of the largest, strongest regulator in the mortgage space, Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, Director Kathy Kraninger, just resigned at the request of the newly sworn-in President Biden, clearing the way for his nominee, Rohit Chopra, to lead the powerful regulatory agency.
Kraninger, a Republican appointed by former President Trump, announced her departure via Twitter roughly an hour after Biden was inaugurated as the 46th U.S. president.
