The Municipal Securities Rulemaking Board has filed revised amendments with the Securities and Exchange Commission seeking to modify earlier proposed rule changes governing retail order periods.

The amendments are in response to market participant comments on June proposals seeking to change Rules G-8 on books and records, G-11 on primary offering practices, and G-32 on primary offering disclosure on retail order periods, the MSRB said. Those changes spelled out new obligations for senior underwriter syndicate managers to disseminate information to members of the syndicate, and would require dealers to capture certain additional information in connection with orders placed under a retail order period to ensure that such orders are from bona fide retail customers.
