Thursday, October 10, 2019 in Media

The GFOA, in partnership with the Alternative Reference Rates Committee (ARRC), published a two-page guide for municipal issuers.

Additionally, this week, the Treasury Department moved to smooth the transition away from LIBOR by proposing a rule allowing market participants to change the reference rate on any contract without tax consequences.
