Statement from Lt. Governor Ron Ramsey regarding Tennessee’s bond rating

Lt. Gov. Ron Ramsey made the following statement following the news that Tennessee would retain its AAA bond rating from Moody’s Investors Service and Fitch Ratings and its AA+ from Standard & Poor’s:

“Tennessee has proved it can outperform any state in the union even in the midst of the Obama recession. Tennessee keeps its debt low and pays what it owes quickly and in full. These ratings are proof that a united Republican government determined to cut government and promote economic growth works. It’s that simple. I’m proud of our Governor, our legislature and our constitutional officers. I’m proud to be a Tennessean.”
