CHICAGO - The Illinois Finance Authority board this week advanced borrowing plans by the prominent Chicago-based Museum of Science and Industry and Provena Health and three small privately placed issues as the authority steps up its efforts to help borrowers access the tax-exempt market.

The Museum of Science and Industry received preliminary approval for its sale of up to $115 million to refund and restructure $30.4 million, pushing out the final maturity. Another $113 million will provide new money and refinance interim taxable debt relating to the $205 million Rediscover Science Campaign.
