The Governmental Accounting Standards Board (GASB) has been focusing its attention on numerous projects recently, resulting in the issuance of a Final Statement, four Exposure Drafts (EDs), and a Plain-Language Supplement (PLS). In addition, the Board is continuing work on the economic condition and pollution remediation obligations projects, as well as beginning discussions on derivatives and hedging and issuing a Technical Bulletin (TB) on derivative disclosures. The Board also began a comprehensive review of previously issued Implementation Guides.
