From yesterday’s Florida blog we’ll travel north slightly to visit the Palmetto Public Finance Forum.  It’s brought to you by the public finance group at Haynsworth Sinkler Boyd, a firm with offices all over South Carolina.  The authors serve as bond counsel for a number of different public entities, including general government, utility, healthcare, housing, schools, colleges and universities, public power, transportation, manufacturing, waste disposal and energy projects.  You’ll find discussions of public offerings versus bank placements, protecting intellectual property as part of economic development, and more.
