The Municipal Bonds for America Council is planning a “virtual fly-in” for Steering Committee members May 5-12. The event will include meetings with senior staff on Capitol Hill and the Administration and will provide MBFA members with the opportunity to talk with policy and decisions makers on MBFA priorities such as:
- Restoration of tax-exempt advance refundings;
- Expansion of PABs including ESG;
- Raising the BQ debt limit; and
- Reinstatement of direct-pay bonds exempt from sequestration.
More details such as scheduling and talking points will be sent to Steering Committee members in the coming days.
This event is part of the ongoing MBFA effort to ensure Congress includes municipal bond financing in any federal infrastructure package. The MBFA has recently launched a new initiative:
Infrastructure in America: Munis Since 1812
Analyzing projects of the past, present, and future will tell the story of how municipal bond market financing has built American infrastructure with efficiency and low cost since 1812.
