This article presents information about developments in the securities industry of various states in the U.S. as of June 10, 2003. A year after voters defeated a 70 million dollar capital budget override, the Peoria Unified School District in suburban Phoenix, Arizona will seek a seven-year, 112 million dollar capital override in November. A Saline County community in Arkansas, known as East End is encouraging a plan to incorporate as a city, a move proponents say would pave the way for the issuance of debt and a better public safety structure. A citizen's committee has recommended that Denver Public Schools ask voters in November to approve a 470.6 million dollar general obligation bond issue.
