WASHINGTON - Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority officials postponed the sale of $175 million airport system revenue bonds that was scheduled to come to market today in a negotiated deal after market conditions remained uncertain yesterday.

"We are going to bump it," said Lynn Hampton, chief financial officer of the MWAA. "I can't tell you when we'll come back to market. [Bond] documents usually are good for a couple of weeks ... two to three weeks ... but you've just got to wait for the market to settle down."
