The Municipal Securities Rulemaking Board, or MSRB, has launched an online “toolkit” for state and local governments as part of its work to protect municipal entities under the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act.

The MSRB is providing information to state and local governments about issuing bonds as it relates to regulations governing financial professionals, as well as instructions for using the MSRB’s Electronic Municipal Market Access (EMMA®) website. The EMMA website allows state and local governments to easily make bond disclosure documents available to the public.
