DALLAS — The Kansas Development Finance Authority will go to market today with the first sale from a $105 million state authorization that will partially finance a federally operated biohazard research facility, as Moody’s Investors Service lowered its outlook on the state to negative from stable.

The agency is selling a total of $109 million of state revenue bonds, which includes $32 million of new money from the authorization. The $109 million is made up of $64.9 million of 25-year tax-exempt bonds, $25.8 million of 15-year taxable Build America Bonds, and $18.3 million of 20-year taxable bonds.
