RISMEDIA, Oct. 26, 2007-(MarketWatch)-A bill that would require licensing mortgage originators and standards for subprime mortgages won support from two federal banking regulators Wednesday.

However, Federal Reserve Governor Randall Kroszner warned that any new legislation should not restrict responsible lending or securitization of mortgages.
