Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin today announced Fitch Ratings has affirmed its A+ stable rating on two bond issues. The rating applies to West Virginia's Lottery Revenue Bonds issued by the West Virginia Economic Development Authority and the Higher Education Policy Commission, and Excess Lottery Revenue Bonds issued by the West Virginia School Building Authority and the West Virginia Economic Development Authority.
"An A+ stable bond rating from Fitch Ratings is good news for the Mountain State," Gov. Tomblin said. "The positive, stable ratings we have received from multiple agencies during the past month are a direct result of the hard work we have done, and continue to do, to keep our financial house in order."
