Municipal Commentary

The municipal bond market enables more than 50,000 state and local governments, agencies, and authorities to fund a variety of public works projects. However, the breadth of the market and its tax advantages leave it subject to the mandates of regulatory agencies and legislators. Our municipal commentary helps you stay up to date on the latest market headlines and trends.
