ABSTRACT
This article reports that the Government Finance Officers Association's (GFOZ) committee on governmental debt management will consider recommended practices on secondary market securitization, tax increment financings, and pension obligation bonds at the GFOA's winter meeting. The committee is furthest along on, and could approve, a recommended practice on secondary market securitization that updates and combines two prior documents adopted by the group in the 1990s. One, released in 1993, was called the Securitization of Leases, and the other, issued in 1996. is called the Securitization of Tax-Exempt Bonds.
