State prepares biggest debt sale

State prepares biggest debt sale

Tennessee will hold the largest bond sale in state history next week to pay for capital and infrastructure projects including Volkswagen, Amazon, Wacker and the UTC library. Tennessee Comptroller Justin Wilson said the state will sell an estimated $584 million worth of bonds to refinance higher interest debt from the past and to pay for capital projects by the state.

"I'm pleased that these bonds will be used to pay for a variety of needs our citizens have, including economic development projects that will create badly needed jobs," Wilson said.

Hours will be Monday-Friday from 7:30 am to 6 p.m.
