Can bond counsel provide an exemption opinion with respect to interest if the interest rate may be increased as a result of increased bond lending costs? Some bond counsel prefer not to opine as to any portion of the interest rate that is adjusted in the event bank costs go up.

There does not appear to be consensus on how to address increased costs that are incorporated into the interest rate.
