I'm in the 33% tax bracket in CA. I'm very curious what kind of advice there may be or what research I should be doing to look at munis - either for short-term or long-term e-fund, place to stash cash, etc.

Be sure to do your due diligence, just as you would for corporate bonds.

P.S. If that's only 33% total US + CA taxes, you might be better off with Treasuries.
