Mark J. Saladino, Securitization of Municipal Obligations in the Secondary Market: The California Legislative Response, 28 URB. LAW. 1 (Winter 1996). Most municipal securities are exempt from registration, the threshold quality control for public offerings. In this environment of minimal oversight, a large secondary market in municipal obligations has arisen, the magnitude of which can only be estimated. This article discusses the purchase of Los Angeles County capital leases and their subsequent sale by an out-of-state firm to the public without the county's knowledge, participation, or consent. It reviews the legislation the county requested to deter unauthorized securitization.
