WASHINGTON — The Municipal Securities Rulemaking Board announced the members of its new, majority-public board Friday, hours after it proposed a series of large fee increases to defray the technology costs for its EMMA site as well as expenses tied to the regulation of municipal advisers under the Dodd-Frank Act.

The new members include Robert Fippinger, senior counsel at Orrick Herrington & Sutcliffe LLP in New York and the author of a seminal primer on municipal securities regulation, along with C. Christopher Trower, an Atlanta-based attorney who successfully argued for Kentucky in a landmark 2008 Supreme Court decision that upheld states’ rights to preferential tax treatment of their own bonds.
