The Louisiana State Bond Commission on Thursday will consider several options by the Louisiana Stadium and Exposition District to refinance $294 million of variable-rate debt and other obligations. The debt was issued in 2006 to finance repairs and improvements at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome after Hurricane Katrina.

The district is asking for preliminary approval for up to $450 million of revenue refinancing bonds. The refinancing includes unspecified swap termination payments on fixed-to-fixed and fixed-to-floating-rate swaps, bond insurance and litigation costs.
