Biden Spending Plan Seen Jolting Muni Green-Bond Sales to Record

  • Parametric eyes record $30B to $35B of sales in 2021
  • Boom would follow unprecedented $20 billion wave last year

The proposal includes money for mass transit, green housing development, electric-vehicle charging infrastructure and strengthened water systems and electric grids.
