The seminar is tailored to answer questions by investment banking, financial service and venture capital firms, bond counsels and other public and private agencies and groups involved in economic development.

The seminar will begin at 8 a.m. and continue until 4:30 p.m. An overview and background of the new law will be given by state legislators attending the seminar, while officials with the commerce department are slated to explain the structure and implementation of the provisions of the act.
