The bill, unveiled by Chairman ""Tim Johnson"":http://www.johnson.senate.gov/public/ (D-South Dakota) and Ranking Member ""Mike Crapo"":http://www.crapo.senate.gov/ (R-Idaho) earlier in the month, includes a number of bipartisan proposals from the committee intended to strengthen the FHA's financial situation, protect taxpayers, and ensure qualified borrowers still have access to credit.

The bill passed by a vote of 21-1, according to a release from the committee's website.

""This was a bipartisan effort from start to finish,"" Johnson said. ""The reforms we approved today are the product of a lot of hard work from members on both sides of the aisle, and I appreciate the spirit of bipartisanship and open debate that my colleagues on the Committee demonstrated throughout the amendment process.""
