This week Standard & Poor’s upgraded California’s general obligation bond rating from A- to A, changing the state’s status from “stable” to “positive.” The higher rating will lower the state’s borrowing cost when it sells bonds this spring.
In a statement released Thursday, State Treasurer Bill Lockyer credited Gov. Jerry Brown, the Legislature, and voters for coming together to make tough decisions and sacrifices for the good of the state.
