MSRB Extends Pay-to-Play Rule to Municipal Advisors and Third-Party Solicitors
Today, the Municipal Securities Rulemaking Board (MSRB) announced new pay-to-play regulations, extending current pay-to-play rules to municipal advisors, including those acting as third-party solicitors. “The integrity of the municipal market will be well-served by regulations to help ensure that all municipal advisors that do business with state and local governments do so based on the merits of their work and not on financial influence,” said MSRB Executive Director Lynnette Kelly in a press release. The new regulations take effect on August 17.
