CHICAGO - The Metropolitan Pier and Exposition Authority in Chicago will proceed later this month with a debt refunding and new-money issue that has been downsized to $240 million, according to authority officials and underwriters.

In March, the authority's board approved a refunding issue of about $490 million, but higher interest rates since that time forced the refunding down to around $175 million.
