Pence touts state’s fiscal strength

– Gov. Mike Pence headed to New York City on Tuesday to showcase Indiana’s continued fiscal strength in a series of meetings with bond rating agencies.

It is an opportunity for the new governor to introduce himself to the agencies, and share Indiana’s ongoing story.

“Indiana’s credit rating is an important part of our fiscal foundation and our strategy to attract more good paying jobs to our state,” Pence said. “While other states are struggling, Indiana is in a solid fiscal position with an honestly balanced budget that holds the line on spending and saves for the future. I look forward to sharing Indiana’s plans for continued fiscal leadership and economic development with the nation’s leading bond rating agencies this week."

Pence will meet with Standard & Poor’s, Moody’s and Fitch. Chris Atkins, director of the Office of Management and Budget, and other senior members of the governor’s finance team will join him.

Indiana currently has the highest rating with the major bond rating agencies.
