The article reports that in its first bond sale since 1996, and its last for the indefinite future, the Cook County, Illinois., Forest Preserve District will sell $100 million of general obligation bonds. Though the district's bond rating has improved, that likely won't be enough to soothe divisions among board members as the district and the county begin budget negotiations in the coming months. This sale follows county bond issues sold earlier this year, the last deals the county expects until 2006. Though the two entities are separate, the bonds carry similar reputations in the market.
