Ray Lehmann, senior fellow at free-market advocacy group R Street Institute in Washington, which is a member of SmarterSafer, called the bill a “step toward a private market.”

He noted that one potential source of opposition has not materialized.

“The lending community is where there would be objections, and the bankers and other groups have not raised any serious concerns,” Mr. Lehmann said. “It has support from the Realtors. Most of the organizations that are interested are either neutral or positive.”
