The article highlights the recommendation of the National Association of Bond Lawyers to the U.S. Treasury Department to issue guidance on several tax-exempt finance topics for which existing guidance is out of date. The agency should focus on issuing allocation and accounting regulations as well as naming rights of bond-financed facilities. It should also issue guidance on advance refundings hedged by London Interbank Offered Rate swaps.
