Please be aware of the following critical correction to the January/February 2013 issue of The Review magazine:
Page 46, the Municipal Q&A, contains a question on EVIP requirements and lists the next EVIP deadline as February 13, 2013.  THE CORRECT DEADLINE IS FEBRUARY 1, 2013.  All of our online materials, the information we’ve provided in webinars and trainings and the information you are receiving from Treasury contains the correct deadline.  The print version of the magazine is the only place that contains this typo. The online magazine has been corrected here.
