The Essex County, N.J., Improvement Authority Wednesday will sell $72.6 million of lease-revenue bonds that will help Newark balance its 2010 budget.

The authority will issue the bonds as a conduit issuer. Newark will make lease payments to the ECIA, which will repay the bonds. New Jersey's largest city will pledge its full faith and credit to meet its lease payment obligations to the authority.
