DALLAS - The Texas Public Finance Authority will ask underwriters bidding for a proposed negotiated issue to share the same information about political contributions that the firms have already been asked to voluntarily give the Securities and Exchange Commission.

The authority's board voted 4 to 2 on Monday to make the disclosure voluntary in what some board members believe is a first step toward a more formal disclosure requirement. Two members who voted for the measure are municipal investment bankers appointed by Gov. Ann Richards.
