WAC 253-16-100

Selection of bond counsel.

The authority will establish a roster of bond counsels whom the authority believes possess the requisite special expertise and professional standing to provide bond counsel opinions which would be accepted by the underwriters, bond holders, rating agencies and other members of the financial community, and which would be in furtherance of the public interest in obtaining the lowest possible interest rates on bonds issued by the authority.
Law firms or attorneys may submit to the authority at any time the request to be included on the roster of approved bond counsel.
At least once every two calendar years, the authority shall select anew an attorney or attorneys to serve as bond counsel. However, the authority may retain an attorney for longer than two years when necessary to complete work on a particular bond issue. An attorney previously selected may be selected again, but the authority will provide other attorneys or bond counsel on the roster with an opportunity to be selected prior to this action being taken. The authority also reserves the right to appoint bond counsel with respect to only a particular bond issue or issues.
