The article reports on the status of municipal bonds after the return of 30-year Treasury bonds was met with strong demand, particularly from foreign investors, lifting the government debt market and encouraging tax-exempt traders to heighten their bids in the United States. The bonds which were quoted 4.35 percent will mature in 2032. The reintroduction of 30-year bonds brought confusion to some municipal bond market participants about the relative value of tax-exempt bonds.
