Billion-dollar deals will make a comeback this week when both Los Angeles County and Cook County, Ill., test the municipal waters, hoping for strong investor demand in the midst of the spring rollover season.

The pair of deals is expected to arrive amid an estimated slate of $8.54 billion in new volume, according to Ipreo LLC and The Bond Buyer. The supply is more than triple last week’s skimpy post-holiday fare, which was revised down to $2.29 billion, according to Thomson Reuters, after originally being pegged at $4 billion. It is also nearly $1 billion more than the revised $7.69 billion that was priced the week of May 24.
