MSRB NOTICE 2010-09 (MARCH 26, 2010)

REMINDER: AMENDED FORM G-37 REQUIRED FOR DISCLOSURE OF BOND BALLOT CAMPAIGN AND OTHER CONTRIBUTIONS UNDER MSRB RULE G-37

Effective February 1, 2010, the Municipal Securities Rulemaking Board (“MSRB”) amended its Rule G-37 to require the disclosure of certain contributions to bond ballot campaigns made by dealers on amended Form G-37. MSRB Rule G-8 was also amended to require dealers to create and maintain records of such contributions to bond ballot campaigns. Reportable contributions made through March 31, 2010 must be disclosed on amended Form G-37, which is required to be submitted to the MSRB on or prior to April 30, 2010.[1]  As a transitional matter, the MSRB has accepted submissions made after February 1, 2010 on the prior version of Form G-37.  However, beginning April 1, 2010, the MSRB will only accept amended Form G-37.

Effective today, the electronic version of amended Form G-37 is available for users wishing to submit amended Form G-37 electronically through the existing eG-37 System accessible through MSRB Gateway.

Questions about the amendments should be directed to Leslie Carey, Associate General Counsel, at (703) 797-6600.
