Washington, DC –The Board of Directors of the Municipal Securities Rulemaking Board (MSRB) will meet in Washington, D.C. on October 25-26, 2023, holding the first quarterly board meeting of fiscal year 2024 to advance its FY 2022-2025 Strategic Plan.

Market Regulation and Market Structure

The Board will receive an update on progress toward filing proposed amendments to MSRB Rule G-14, which the Board had previously approved, to shorten the timeframe for trades to be reported to the MSRB from 15 minutes to as soon as practicable, but no later than one minute, subject to certain exceptions. The Board also will discuss comments received in response to the request for comment on MSRB Rule G-47, on time of trade disclosure, and consider potential next steps.

Market Transparency Products and Services

The Board will receive an update regarding work to modernize the Electronic Municipal Market Access (EMMA®) website and related market transparency systems, including user personalization and improvements to search and the disclosure submission process.

Annual Rate Card

The Board will discuss and vote to approve the 2024 rate card to adjust rates for the three market activity fees and the municipal advisor professional fee. The MSRB’s new rate card process annually adjusts rates assessed on regulated entities to ensure a timelier return of any excess revenue (i.e., surplus) to regulated entities and to better manage the organization’s reserve funds.

The Municipal Securities Rulemaking Board (MSRB) protects and strengthens the municipal bond market, enabling access to capital, economic growth, and societal progress in tens of thousands of communities across the country. The MSRB fulfills this mission by creating trust in our market through informed regulation of dealers and municipal advisors that protects investors, issuers and the public interest; building technology systems that power our market and provide transparency for issuers, institutions, and the investing public; and serving as the steward of market data that empowers better decisions and fuels innovation for the future. The MSRB is a self-regulatory organization governed by a board of directors that has a majority of public members, in addition to representatives of regulated entities. The MSRB is overseen by the Securities and Exchange Commission and Congress.
