KBRA Releases Report Assigning AA Rating, Stable Outlook on State of Louisiana General Obligation Bonds, Series 2024-A and Refunding Series 2024-B

18 Mar 2024   |   New York


On March 15, 2024, KBRA assigned the long-term rating of AA with a Stable Outlook to the State of Louisiana General Obligation Bonds, Series 2024-A and General Obligation Refunding Bonds, Series 2024-B. Concurrently, KBRA affirmed the AA long-term rating and Stable Outlook on parity General Obligation bonds outstanding.

The bonds benefit from a pledge of the State’s full faith and credit to the punctual payment of principal and interest. The pledge is further supported by a legal framework, which provides for all State money deposited in the State Treasury, excluding grants or donations, to be first credited to the Bond Security and Redemption Fund (“BSRF”). Under the administrative procedures of the State Treasurer’s office, monthly debt service requirements are set aside in the BSRF during the immediately preceding and current months, followed by monthly transfers of excess funds to the State’s general and other funds. Proceeds from the sale of the Series 2024-A G.O. bonds will finance various capital outlay projects, while Series 2024-B G.O. refunding bond proceeds will refund State General Obligation Refunding Bonds, Series 2014-C maturing on August 1, 2025, 2026 and 2027.
