ABSTRACT
The article reports on the issuance of general obligation bonds for the construction of new schools and renovation of the older ones in Ohio. The 10-year program which makes use of the state money and the local money, has so far raised an impressive amount. According to state debt manager Kurt Kauffman, the state will have to change the selling method of bonds between negotiated and competitive. The bonds will have a 20-year maturity period.
