Unlocking Municipal Bond Potential – How Modernization Can Drive Local Investment

  • CVC-268, Capitol Visitor Center (map)

Wednesday, July 10, 2019 • 12:00 p.m. – 1:00 p.m.

CVC 268 Capitol Visitor Center

Please join the leaders of the House Municipal Finance Caucus and the Public Finance Network (PFN) at a lunch briefing on our top legislative priorities to unlock investment in our nation’s vital infrastructure and thriving communities. As Congress considers infrastructure legislation, a number of novel approaches are under consideration. But the single most powerful tool for financing these investments is, and will be, the tax-exempt municipal bond. In turn, strengthening this tool may be the most powerful and cost-effective way to drive further investments. We hope that you will join us for this lunch briefing to learn more about what is being proposed and to hear firsthand from local officials about how these changes would drive local investment.

Formed in 1988, the PFN is a coalition of organizations united to preserve the tax-exemption for municipal bonds. The organizations represent a wide array of public entities responsible for building and improving schools, streets, highways, hospitals, bridges, water and sewer systems, ports, airports and other public works projects.  Approximately three-quarters of the nation’s core infrastructure investments are financed with municipal bonds issued by public entities.

Please email mbelarmino@gfoa.org with questions or to let us know if you plan on joining us. We look forward to seeing you there!
