Increased MSRB Technology Fee

Summary

SIFMA provides comments to the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) on the Municipal Securities Rulemaking Board’s (MSRB) adjustment of their fees, increasing them, to align revenues with operational and capital expenses. The MSRB collects technology fees from municipal securities dealers and municipal advisors. SIFMA strongly opposes the rule changes contained in Notice 2015-13 and urge the Commission to exercise its authority to temporarily suspend the Rule Changes and to institute proceedings to disapprove the MSRB’s changes announced in the Notice.
