The article reports that the Massachusetts Water Pollution Abatement Trust will postpone its $340.3 million pool program bond sale � originally set to price today � until next week to avoid competing with the state's $801.9 million new money and refunding general obligation deal which is planned for sale today. Selling two large Massachusetts offerings on the same day would flood the market with state paper and possibly raise interest rates, those associated with the trust said yesterday.
