DALLAS — Amid renewed attention to the growing border economy, two major bond issues from the El Paso, Texas, international crossroads region will provide funding for transportation, law enforcement and education.

El Paso County will raise $100 million through certificates of obligation in a negotiated deal expected to price June 25. County commissioners met Monday to select the underwriter on the deal. The certificates will cover construction and improvements to the county’s jail and the Tornillo-Guadalupe Land Port of Entry.
