The municipal market was slightly firmer yesterday, as Massachusetts came to market with an upsized $956 million sale of taxable Build America Bonds.

Goldman, Sachs & Co. priced the deal, which matures in 2030 and 2039. The bonds yield 5.306% in 2030 and 5.456% in 2039, or 3.45% and 3.55% respectively after the 35% federal subsidy, both priced at par. The bonds were priced to yield 105 and 120 basis points over the comparable Treasury yield, respectively.
