GFOA Leads Efforts with the PFN to Welcome Treasury Secretary Yellen

In a letter sent on January 28, GFOA along with its partners at the Public Finance Network (PFN) congratulated Janet Yellen on her confirmation to serve as Secretary of the United States Treasury and offered its resources to help address the fiscal and monetary challenges facing the country. The letter reinforced the robust partnership GFOA and the PFN have long held with the federal government and outlined shared priorities and recommendations to consider such as the preservation of tax-exemption on qualified municipal securities, restoring tax-exemption for advance refunding bonds, supporting small issuers, providing direct fiscal support and supporting the Office of State and Local Finance.
