Top-rated municipal bonds again finished weaker, traders said, as the last of the week's new issue supply came to market Thursday. Munis followed Treasuries lower ahead of Friday's U.S. employment situation report.

The yield on the 10-year benchmark muni general obligation rose six basis points to 2.58% from 2.52% on Wednesday, while the yield on the 30-year increased nine basis points to 3.35% from 3.26%, according to the final read of Municipal Market Data's triple-A scale.
