About the Coalition

Municipal Bonds for America is a non-partisan coalition of municipal bond issuers and State and local government officials combined with senior leadership at regional broker dealers working together to explain the many benefits of the traditional municipal bond market, highlighting the tax-exemption which enables State and local governments to finance vital infrastructure at the lowest cost to their taxpayers while maintaining the integrity and value of the municipal bond market and providing the highest quality investments for municipal bond investors.  Particularly in the context of broad-based tax-reform, the coalition is committed to advancing proposals that protect the interests of taxpayers, investors, and state and local governments.  The coalition strongly believes by bringing together key stakeholders the municipal market will demonstrate its soundness and stability; will represent the unique interests of the municipal bond market community; and will continue to provide the lowest cost of finance for State and local governments nationwide.
