The Congressional Municipal Finance Caucus, headed by Co-Chairs Rep. Randy Hultgren (R-IL) and Rep. Dutch Ruppersberger (D-MD), has unveiled its new website. Currently consisting of 23 representatives, the caucus was formed to address threats to tax exempt municipal financing and will work with state and local governments and their associations to educate other policymakers on the importance of the tax exemption. The MFC was created with the following purposes in mind:
 
To recognize the vital contribution that municipal financing has played in the evolution of the United States
To protect a century’s old tax-exemption that has driven the economy, spurred job growth, funded critical infrastructure projects and enhanced the quality of life
Using the legislative process to support an open forum where Members of Congress are able to discuss, identify and promote common sense policy solutions to strengthen municipal financing for all Americans 

The full list of caucus members can be found on the MFC website.
