APGA Collaborates on a Public Financing Primer

By Stuart Saulters posted 12 days ago

APGA recently came together with other members of the Public Finance Network (PFN) to develop an informative primer, “Understanding Financing Options Used for Public Infrastructure.” This valuable document will mostly be referenced by Capitol Hill staff, but others, including those stakeholders APGA members work with, are welcome to review it.
As APGA staff and members continue to push for legislation on American Infrastructure Bonds (AIB) and reinstating Advance Refunding (AR), the details in this primer can educate on the benefits of all public financing tools. To support the public natural gas utilities around the U.S., APGA joined the PFN and coordinates with all the members frequently. This coalition was formed in 1988 and is made up of organizations united to preserve state and local government use of tax-exempt bonds. The groups engaged aim to support a wide array of local and state government financing and infrastructure activities. The PFN is spearheaded by the Government Finance Officers Association (GFOA).
