The article reports on the plan of the Council of Development Finance Agencies to ask the U.S. Congress to expand the definition of small-issue industrial development bonds (IDB) manufacturing. The group argues that the biotechnology and computer software industries should be included as allowable projects for IDB financing. Another plan of the group is to connect with other national municipal bond associations.
