Abstract:     
There is a growing gap between infrastructure needs and available funding along the U.S.-Mexico border. A recent proposal to address the situation calls for the creation of a bi-national mechanism of bond financing to enable sub-national governments from both countries to issue bonds jointly. Creating the legal infrastructure to attain this goal requires an evaluation of key aspects of existing regulations. It also calls for a discussion of the feasibility of regulatory harmonization. This article compares bond issuance rules and investor protection mechanisms in both countries and discusses how these differences may affect the viability of a bi-national bond mechanism.
