Seminar - Municipal Market Disclosure: Current Topics and Practices
March 18-19, 2014 | Sheraton Fairplex Hotel & Conference Center, Pomona, CA

Both the Securities and Exchange Commission and the Government Accounting Office noted in their evaluation of the municipal market the need to improve market transparency through better disclosure. Efforts to do so, however, have stirred as much controversy as they have resulted in improved practices. This one and a half day program is devoted to a discussion of where we are and how much further we have to go. Day One of this seminar will focus on the current rules and proposed reform initiatives for primary and secondary disclosure practices by public agencies. Day Two will focus on recommended disclosure practices for direct loans and general obligation debt.

LOS ANGELES – The Southern California Association of Governments (SCAG) on Thursday praised the California Air Resources Board (CARB) for adopting ambitious and achievable climate targets, hailing the vote as a win for regional collaboration and long-term sustainability in the state.

Since Senate Bill 375 was passed in 2009, CARB has set and periodically updated targets at both the state and regional level for reducing greenhouse gas emissions. CARB has been working on an update to the target for the past year and, after a long collaborative process with state and regional leaders, has chosen an ambitious and achievable target for Southern California’s emission reduction.
