ABSTRACT
The article reports that, the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) plans to issue $200 million of auction-rate debt on September 15. The negotiated deal would refund fixed-rate debt issued by the agency in 1996 to construct its headquarters tower next to Los Angeles Union Station. The authority plans to swap to a synthetic fixed rate, said the MTA's executive officer for finance Terry Mat-Sumoto. The proceeds will advance refund the entire $186 million of principal from the 1996 bonds.
