ABSTRACT
The article reports that Miami-Dade County commissioners and newly elected Mayor Carlos Alvarez on Tuesday approved additional criteria for evaluating the suspension or removal of firms from the county's underwriting pool. Any investigation threatened, pending, or resolved by any federal or state authority concerning a firm's public finance-related activities, particularly any Miami-Dade transactions and any civil or criminal litigation, will be evaluated in determining a firm's disposition, according to county documents. A firm going out of business because of bankruptcy or ending its underwriting operations will be automatically removed from the pool.
