ABSTRACT
The article reports that the Oklahoma Capitol Improvement Authority has selected the final members of the financial team that will bring 125 million dollar of the 475 million in higher-education bonds authorized by the Legislature in 2005. The authority's board also set a 5 percent rate cap on the 125 million dollar of variable-rate state facilities revenue bonds. The Legislature has approved the debt as 30-year bonds to keep the debt service as low as possible.
