The Conduit Street Podcast is pleased to announce that our friends at the Maryland Department of Legislative Services (DLS) have launched a podcast. In this week’s premiere episode, Matthew Bennett and Patrick Frank discuss bond sales in Maryland:
-Why does the state government borrow money, through bonds, to pay for capital projects?
-What does the state’s Triple-A bond rating mean for taxpayers?
-How does the state actually sell bonds? Who can buy them?
The nationally-regarded Department of Legislative Services staff walks you through these nuts and bolts, and explains a little-understood but important part of government finance in their debut podcast.
A link to the podcast can be found on the DLS website.
The Conduit Street Podcast will be back later this week with an episode on Maryland’s opioid crisis.
