NABL Leadership Visits Capitol Hill and Regulators
On June 27, 2018, NABL President Sandy MacLennan and President-Elect Dee Wisor visited Capitol Hill and with regulators at the Municipal Securities Rulemaking Board (MSRB) and U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). Specifically, they met with senior staff from the House Ways & Means and Senate Finance Committees, as well as the SEC’s Office of Municipal Securities, and Lynnette Kelly, Executive Director of the MSRB. They discussed NABL’s mission, as well as current issues of importance to the membership, including Tax Reform Phase 2 and proposed amendments to SEC Rule 15c2-12. The Hill meetings also focused on the important role tax-exempt municipal bonds play in financing public infrastructure across the United States. Meetings with regulators also included discussions about what’s on their agenda and how NABL can be helpful.
