BRADENTON, Fla. — Tennessee expects to sell one of the largest competitive deals this week with $140 million of tax-exempt general obligation bonds and $30.5 million of taxable refunding GOs backed by the state's full faith and credit.

This is the state's first competitive offering since 2010, and for investors seeking high-quality paper it is expected to be the last time Tennessee is in the bond market for about a year, according to Mary-Margaret Collier, director of state and local finance.
