Bank of America Merrill Lynch won the bid for $484.5 million of New York's Empire State Development Corp. personal income tax revenue bonds, rated AAA by Standard & Poor's and AA by Fitch Ratings. The issuer also auctioned $273.8 million of revenue bonds in a separate pricing, which Goldman Sachs won, with details unavailable at press time.
