Do local allocation taxgrants boost the issuance of road bonds? : Evidence from Japan’s local governments

This study, by focusing on road construction projects in Japan’s local governments (excluding Tokyo), conducts a quantitative analysis of the relationship between the issuance of road bonds and the rate at which the redemption of the principal and interest on these bonds factors into standard financial need (hereinafter, “local allocation tax cover rate”). Furthermore, it analyzes whether the approved amount of local government road bonds varies with the local allocation tax cover rate. Our analysis indicates that local governments who had stronger finances and greater investment reserves issued more road bonds. Furthermore, because specific local road improvement works combine local public subsidized works and local public non-subsidized works, road bonds can be said to be linked to national treasury disbursements even if there exists a local allocation tax cover system that allows for the redemption of the principal and interest on local bonds.
