On January 20th, the SEC approved the Municipal Securities Rulemaking Board's proposed amendments to Rule G-37 (Political Contributions and Prohibitions on Municipal Securities Business) and Rule G-8 (Books and Records to be Made by Brokers, Dealers and Municipal Securities Dealers). The amendments to Rule G-37 require public disclosure of contributions to bond ballot campaigns made by dealers, municipal finance professionals ("MFPs"), their political action committees, and non-MFP executive officers on MSRB Form G-37. The amendments to Rule G-8 would require dealers to create and maintain records of non-de minimis contributions to bond ballot campaigns that would be required to be disclosed on Form G-37 under the proposed amendments to Rule G-37. SEC Release No. 34-61381.
