This article reports that King County, Washington, is considering refunding some of its outstanding ballpark bonds and plans to back bonds for a new government office complex. Whether the refunding of the 1997 Seattle Mariners stadium bonds occurs on December 6, 2004, as planned depends largely on market conditions. Interest rates have increased nearly 20 basis points since the refunding was first considered, said Nigel King, senior debt analyst for Washington's most populous county. The county requires a minimum present value savings of 5% in order to go through with a refunding.
