Abstract

Historic flooding from Hurricane Harvey struck many Houston housing developments whose infrastructure was funded with municipal utility district (MUD) bonds. The tax-exempt debt has been widely used in the Houston area, and in the storm’s aftermath, MUD bond issuance has come under review with the possibility investors may seek greater future compensation.
