Jefferson County, Alabama’s financial woes thrust the county into national headlines last week.  On November 9, the County officially filed for Chapter 9 bankruptcy protection, marking the largest U.S. municipal bankruptcy in history.  As such - and perhaps because it follows so closely on the heels of Harrisburg, Pennsylvania’s bankruptcy filing - there is no shortage of media coverage.

As your hub for municipal-related research, MuniNet Guide has compiled the following list of resources pertaining to Jefferson County, its finances, and its bankruptcy filing.  We’ve also included several recent articles that we feel best summarize recent events and the potential implications on the municipal bond market at large:
