In Jefferson County, Alaska market conditions are compelling investors in municipal bonds to seek more information about the securities they buy, and issuers need to be aware of disclosure rules and comply with them, the attendees at the Jefferson County Investor Relations Forum were told on May 2, 2003. Despite favorable interest rates and record issuance, a 100 billion dollar gap in state and local budgets, ongoing turmoil at airports and airlines, and the impact of court decisions on tobacco settlement bonds are making credit quality more important to investors than ever, Gary Krellenstein, J.P. Morgan Securities Inc. research analyst told forum attendees.
