CT Gen Stat § 7-574 (2012) What's This?

Any municipality that desires to issue general obligations under section 7-575 shall apply to the secretary for certification. The secretary may certify as a tier II municipality any municipality which applies to be certified to issue a general obligation authorized by subsection (a) of section 7-394b and sections 7-560 to 7-579, inclusive, provided such municipality (1) has a long-term bond rating from at least one bond rating agency which is investment grade or higher, (2) is unable to obtain municipal bond insurance from any bond insurance company on reasonable terms and conditions on the date the secretary certifies such municipality, (3) has not issued a deficit obligation in the last five years, (4) has no deficit obligations outstanding, and (5) otherwise meets the standards established by the secretary. Such standards shall be adopted as regulations by the secretary, in consultation with the Treasurer, and shall provide for a level of supervision over such municipality which the secretary deems to be sufficient to minimize the risk of a draw upon the special capital reserve fund and a transfer from the state General Fund. The secretary may recertify and decertify any municipality then certified, provided the secretary shall not automatically decertify any municipality which is able to secure bond insurance after it has been certified by the secretary.
