The article reports on the issues regarding the legislation that would forbid local and state government issuers of municipal securities from employing any financial advisers rather than the registered broker-dealers in South Carolina. President Keith Curry of the National Association of Independent Public Finance Advisors expressed their opposition to the said legislation. The bill also allows a broker-dealer financial adviser to serve as both adviser and underwriter in a transaction.
