(b) LIMITATIONS ON SALE OF PREFERRED STOCK.—Notwithstanding any other provision of law or any provision of the Senior Preferred Stock Purchase Agreement, until at least January 1, 2018, the Secretary may not sell, transfer, relinquish, liquidate, divest, or otherwise dispose of any outstanding shares of senior preferred stock acquired pursuant to the Senior Preferred Stock Purchase Agreement, unless Congress has passed and the President has signed into law legislation that includes a specific instruction to the Secretary regarding the sale, transfer, relinquishment, liquidation, divestiture, or other disposition of the senior preferred stock so acquired. (c) SENSE OF CONGRESS.—It is the Sense of Congress that Congress should pass and the President should sign into law legislation determining the future of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, and that notwithstanding the expiration of subsection (b), the Secretary should not sell, transfer, relinquish, liquidate, divest, or otherwise dispose of any outstanding shares of senior preferred stock acquired pursuant to the Senior Preferred Stock Purchase Agreement until such legislation is enacted. Congress set a date at which their time to restrict a sell/transfer/cancellation of the SPS. That date was Jan 01 2018 and has since passed. She is now proposing a bill that would grant another 2 year extension to the administrative power to alter the SPS contracts. Given that the bill would have to pass the House, Senate and be signed by Trump, this looks like Congress has little power to stop the cancellation of the sps. If they could do it now why would they need to pass this bill?
