After being postponed for nearly two months, the San Francisco Airport Commission is expected to make an appearance in the primary market this week with a $573.3 million sale of revenue bonds against a backdrop of continued conversions of auction-rate securities.

With many issuers across the country seeking conversions of outstanding auction-rate debt to fixed-rate mode, an estimated $4.87 billion in new volume is expected to come to market this week, down from last week's revised $6.27 billion, according to The Bond Buyer.
