S&P Raises Texas to Highest AAA Credit Rating

Friday, September 27, 2013  •  Austin, Texas  •  Press Release

Gov. Rick Perry today released the following statement in response to Standard & Poor's upgrading Texas' credit rating:

"S&P's decision to raise Texas' credit rating to AAA is no accident, but further proof that the Texas model of conservative fiscal discipline is a key element of our strong economy, and a stark contrast to the out-of-control spending and rising debt ceilings of Washington, D.C. In Texas, we adhere to the powerful combination of keeping taxes low and government spending in check, ensuring Texas remains the best place in the country to live, work, raise a family and build a business."
