An announcement could come as soon as this week.

The Office of Federal Housing Enterprise Oversight is close to reducing, but not completely removing, an excess capital requirement it has in place at both firms, people familiar with the matter said. The requirement, imposed in the wake of accounting problems several years ago, forces them to hold 30% more capital than their normal minimums.
