The Department of the Treasury (Treasury) is issuing this final rule to revise the regulations governing State and Local Government Series (SLGS) securities. SLGS securities are non-marketable Treasury securities that are only available for purchase by issuers of tax-exempt securities. The changes in the final rule prohibit issuers of tax-exempt securities from engaging in certain practices that in effect use the SLGS program as a cost-free option. The final rule also makes other changes that are designed to improve the administration of the SLGS program.
