This week's chunky calendar will be headlined by TSASC Inc.'s $1 billion tobacco settlement bond deal. Jefferies is set to price the New York bond deal which will refund the authority's outstanding bonds, which were previously issued by the Local Development Corporation.
Elsewhere, Morgan Stanley is set to price the Salt River Agricultural Improvement and Power District, Arizona's.'s $720 million of refunding revenue bonds through the Salt River Project Electric System.
