BRADENTON, Fla. — Mississippi expects to price this week’s largest negotiated deal with a $650.7 million taxable general obligation bond transaction that represents only its second issuance of Build America Bonds.

The fast-growing taxable BAB tool, set to expire Dec. 31, is expected to account for 75% of the deal. The state’s only other sale of BABs since the federal stimulus funding was authorized in February 2009 was a $98.3 million deal last year.
