The article reports that the Bond Buyer's yield indexes for the week ending March 23, 2006 were mixed. The performance was influenced in part by a modest calendar and some tender-option bond programs. As a result for some portion of the week, the municipal bond market slowed down. Weekly average yield to maturity on 40-bond Municipal Bond Index finished at 4.75 percent, down one basis point from the previous week.
