The Securities and Exchange Commission plans to propose as early as the end of the month rules that would enhance municipal disclosure, SEC Chairman Christopher Cox said in an interview.

They would also come on top of rule changes the Commission proposed in July to establish a central disclosure repository called Electronic Municipal Market Access, or EMMA, that will be run by the Municipal Securities Rulemaking Board.
