Partner Jonathan Ballan of our Public Finance and Economic Development Group moderated the luncheon panel at the 2023 Bond Buyer National Outlook Conference.
Jon engaged in a fireside chat style Q & A with Elizabeth Fine, Counsel to New York Gov. Kathy Hochul, and RuthAnne Visnauskas, Commissioner and CEO of New York State Homes & Community Renewal, during the luncheon roundtable. Topics discussed included the economic outlook for New York State following the release of Gov. Hochul’s proposed $227 billion budget and an overview of the governor’s proposed plan for addressing housing shortage in New York State.
Over 300 people, representing issuers, municipal advisors, underwriters, rating agencies, bond counsel, attended the conference where top industry experts discussed the national and regional trends driving the market.
