A pair of billion-dollar deals — one in Texas and the other in Utah — will be part of an estimated $7.92 billion expected to be priced in the primary market this week, according to Ipreo LLC and The Bond Buyer. The mammoth deals will help pump some life into what has recently been a lackluster municipal market that’s short on volume.

Last week, investors saw the arrival of a revised $8.19 billion of new volume, an increase from the  $6.72 billion originally projected . The week before, market activity was virtually nonexistent due to late summer holidays, and as a result new volume sunk to $2.64 billion, according to Thomson Reuters.
