The 15-member Municipal Securities Rulemaking Board (MSRB) plans to meet with several investor groups, as well as regulatory and industry officials, during its three-day meeting that would begin on May 7, 2003 at its offices in Alexandria, Virginia. It also will meet with officials from the Securities and Exchange Commission, the National Association of Securities Dealers, and the Bond Market Association. The meetings allow MSRB and each of the groups to trade information about their agendas and various municipal bond market issues. In addition, the board plans to solicit comments on its pending initiatives, such as a proposal pending before the Securities and Exchange Commission to make pricing and other data available from all municipal bond market trades on a next-day basis.
