WASHINGTON — The Municipal Securities Rulemaking Board would begin collecting a $300 annual assessment from municipal advisers beginning this fall if the Securities and Exchange Commission approves the proposal the board filed with it on Tuesday.

The MSRB proposed both a rule change seeking approval of the $300-per-head charge, dubbed an “interim municipal adviser assessment,” as well as new Rule A-11 and a new Form A-11, which would be used in connection with the fee. The MA proposal cannot take effect until the SEC seeks public comments on it and then gives its approval.
