SECURITIES ACT OF 1933

Federal securities legislation originally enacted in 1933 that provides for, among other things, the registration of securities with the Securities and Exchange Commission and the preparation and distribution of prospectuses. Issuers of municipal securities are generally exempt from these requirements, although certain anti-fraud provisions under the Securities Act apply to such issuers. See: EXEMPT SECURITIES.
