CHICAGO – Wisconsin enters the market as soon as Wednesday with about $365 million of general obligation refunding bonds designed to capture both traditional interest-rate savings and to accomplish a debt restructuring for budgetary relief.

Barclays Capital is the senior manager with Ramirez & Co. serving as co-senior manager. Public Financial Management Inc. is advising on the transaction and Foley & Lardner LLP is bond counsel. About $214 million will restructure debt service coming due this spring to ease demands on the state’s general fund with the remainder current and advance refunding existing debt for roughly 10% present-value savings.
