Many investors will set their sights on Washington this week, where the pricing of $1.1 billion of taxable general obligation Build America Bonds is expected to be a record-setting event for both the state and the market — even though overall volume is expected to dip noticeably from last week.

The bonds will arrive amid an estimated $6.67 billion in total new volume expected to be priced this week, according to Ipreo LLC and The Bond Buyer. The total is down significantly from last week’s revised $9.63 billion, according to Thomson Reuters.
