As we emerge from the global pandemic, the level of uncertainty in the municipal market and the challenges California issuers are facing have never been greater. The Federal Reserve actions to drive down inflation, the prospect of COVID revenues running dry, societal shifts that have fundamentally modified economies, enormous effect on global trade of geopolitical instability, and increasing probability of a recession are testing issuers in similar and distinctive ways. This program will explore how these challenges and others are affecting the planning of issuers in different sectors, how issuers are using debt to manage these challenges, and how their financing approaches are changing to mitigate the risks of the extraordinary economic conditions.
