On September 26th, the SEC granted accelerated approval to the Municipal Securities Rulemaking Board's proposed rule changes to MSRB Rules G-8, G-11, and G-32, and conforming changes to Form G-32. The changes will establish basic protections for issuers and customers and provide additional tools to assist with the administration and examinations of retail order period requirements. The changes will provide a mechanism by which issuers can have greater assurance that a dealer has, when directed to do so by the issuer, made a bona fide public offering of securities to retail customers at their initial offering prices. Comments should be submitted on or before October 23, 2013. SEC Release. No. 34-70532.
