DALLAS — The Texas Public Finance Authority approved plans Tuesday to issue more than $2 billion of revenue bonds to repay an advance from the U.S. Treasury Department for unemployment compensation.

The bonds will be issued on behalf of the Texas Workforce Commission in two negotiated deals. Pricing of $1.2 billion of Series A bonds is planned for next week. The $524 million Series B and $300 million Series C are expected to price the first week in December, said Dwight Burns, executive director of the TPFA.
