With the exception of Tax Revenue Anticipation Notes, Permanent University Fund issuances
and non-general obligation issuances by university systems that have an unenhanced long-term rating of at
least AA- or its equivalent, the Texas Bond Review Board (BRB) is responsible for the approval of all
state debt issues and lease purchases with an initial principal amount of greater than $250,000 or a term
of longer than five years.
Certain state securities may be exempted from having to appear before the Board for formal approval.
