PAB's & Advance Refunding Advocacy - Let's Do Our Part!
Private Activity Bond Advocacy:

Advance Refunding Advocacy:
NABL has previously reported that Reps. Randy Hultgren (R-IL) and Dutch Ruppersberger (D-MD) have introduced a bill, H.R. 5003, to reinstate advance refunding bonds. In order to draw more attention to the bill, co-sponsors are needed. To that end, we are working with the Public Finance Network (PFN), seeking as many House Members of Congress to co-sponsor the bill. PFN members, including NABL, have already sent a letter to each member of the House of Representatives encouraging cosponsors. We need to bolster that effort.
