ABSTRACT
The article reports that the Bond Market Association believes that the Municipal Securities Rulemaking Board's Rule G-23 is a successful, well-drafted rule, requiring thorough and accurate disclosure by regulated broker-dealers to issuers and investors in the U.S. The author implies that broker-dealer are highly regulated and play an important role as advisers to municipal bond issuers. The amendments to Rule G-23 adopted at that time addressed the issue of potential conflicts appropriately and effectively by requiring disclosures to issues, rather than seeking to limit issuer choice.
