Municipal Bond Sales Poised to Decelerate as Redemptions Rise – Bloomberg Business

Municipal bond sales in the U.S. are set to decrease in the next month while the amount of redemptions and maturing debt rises.

States and localities plan to issue $7.8 billion of bonds over the next 30 days, according to data compiled by Bloomberg. A week ago, the calendar showed $11.2 billion planned for the coming month. Supply figures exclude derivatives and variable-rate debt. Some municipalities set their deals less than a month before borrowing.

Broward County, Florida, Airport System plans to sell $489 million of bonds, Tennessee has scheduled $416 million, Florida State Board of Education will offer $230 million and California State Public Works Board will bring $223 million to market.
