New Regulations for SLGS
Introduction. On June 30, 2005, Treasury published final regulations under 31 C.F.R. Part 344 (70 FR 37904 June 30, 2005) regarding U.S. Treasury obligations of the State and Local Government Series (“SLGS”), which went into effect on August 15, 2005. Treasury created the SLGS program to assist issuers of tax-exempt bonds in complying with applicable arbitrage investment restrictions through investments of bond proceeds in tailored SLGS at restricted yields. SLGS are used primarily in refunding escrows for advance refundings of prior tax-exempt bonds. Other articles deal with public housing and hospital financing.
