SEC. 2. FINDINGS AND PURPOSE.

    (a) Findings.--The Congress finds that--
            (1) the priorities of our Nation should include expanding 
        homeownership opportunities by providing access to affordable 
        housing that is safe, clean, and healthy;
            (2) our Nation has an abundance of conventional capital 
        sources available for homeownership financing;
            (3) experience with local homeownership programs has shown 
        that if flexible capital sources are available, communities 
        possess ample will and creativity to provide opportunities 
        uniquely designed to assist their citizens in realizing the 
        American dream of homeownership; and
            (4) each consumer should be afforded every reasonable 
        opportunity to access mortgage credit, to obtain the lowest 
        cost mortgages for which the consumer can qualify, to know the 
        true cost of the mortgage, to be free of regulatory burdens, 
        and to know what factors underlie a lender's decision regarding 
        the consumer's mortgage.
    (b) Purpose.--It is the purpose of this Act--
            (1) to encourage and facilitate homeownership by families 
        in the United States who are not otherwise able to afford 
        homeownership; and
            (2) to expand homeownership through policies that--
                    (A) promote the ability of the private sector to 
                produce affordable housing without excessive government 
                regulation;
                    (B) encourage tax incentives, such as the mortgage 
                interest deduction, at all levels of government; and
                    (C) facilitate the availability of flexible capital 
                for homeownership opportunities and provide local 
                governments with increased flexibility under existing 
                Federal programs to facilitate homeownership.

         TITLE I--REMOVAL OF BARRIERS TO HOUSING AFFORDABILITY

SEC. 101. SHORT TITLE.

    This title may be cited as the ``Housing Affordability Barrier 
Removal Act of 2000''.

SEC. 102. HOUSING IMPACT ANALYSIS.

    (a) Applicability.--Except as provided in subsection (b), the 
requirements of this section shall apply with respect to--
            (1) any proposed rule, unless the agency promulgating the 
        rule--
                    (A) has certified that the proposed rule will not, 
                if given force or effect as a final rule, have a 
                significant deleterious impact on housing 
                affordability; and
                    (B) has caused such certification to be published 
                in the Federal Register at the time of publication of 
                general notice of proposed rulemaking for the rule, 
                together with a statement providing the factual basis 
                for the certification; and
            (2) any final rule, unless the agency promulgating the 
        rule--
                    (A) has certified that the rule will not, if given 
                force or effect, have a significant deleterious impact 
                on housing affordability; and
                    (B) has caused such certification to be published 
                in the Federal Register at the time of publication of
