Chicago city council pitched on pension obligation bonds
from Bond Buyer
Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel's administration estimates a $10 billion pension obligation bond sale could generate more than $6 billion in long-term savings for the city. “In today’s market, we estimate that a hypothetical issuance of fund stabilization bonds could generate more than $6 billion in gross savings” and “reduce the amount needed for revenue increases,” according to a handout distributed at meetings Chief Financial Officer Carole Brown held with council members Thursday.
