MBFA to Hold Muni Bonds 101 Seminar on Capitol Hill
Please join the Municipal Bonds for America Coalition for “Municipal Bonds 101” on Capitol Hill. For more information, to view the invitation and RSVP, click here.
Tax-exempt bonds help stimulate public and private investment in job creation, business, and industry expansion, economic and physical redevelopment, transportation and infrastructure, and renewable energy production, among many other projects. In fact, tax-exempt bonds are issued by over 50,000 state and local governments and authorities representing a three trillion dollar industry.
During Municipal Bonds 101, you will hear from a mayor, a CEO who works in airport finance, and a seasoned public finance expert–all of whom can explain the “nuts and bolts” of municipal bonds in easy-to-understand terms so that you can translate the potential impact of federal legislation on constituents in your congressional district. Within minutes you will be able to recognize who the key players are in any infrastructure project that is financed by municipal bonds–and the “real money” costs that could fall on all taxpayers and consumers if the rules for tax-exempt bonds are changed.
