WASHINGTON - A group of municipal analysts is urging the Securities and Exchange Commission to require muni issuers to file with EMMA certain material event notices related to swaps, bank bonds, and liquidity facilities. But issuers and borrowers are warning that the proposed 10-day deadline for filing material event notices would be difficult or impossible to meet and are pushing for 30 days instead.

The groups and municipalities are making their warnings and requests to the SEC in comment letters about the commission's proposals to tighten its Rule 15c2-12 to improve the timeliness and quality of municipal disclosure.
