The Austin Community College District in Texas will bring a 75 million dollar bond offering to market on June 12, 2003, in a deal that marks the 30-year-old system's first issue of general obligation debt. The sale comes just over a month after a May 3 election in which the district won its first increase in the property tax rate in 17 years and voters authorized the issuance of up to 99 million dollars of general obligation bonds. RBC Dain Rauscher Inc. is the lead manager for the deal.
