An annual study says improving
revenues mean North Carolina government can issue more debt and still remain
within borrowing guidelines that panelists believe help the state retain its
top credit ratings.
A panel led by State Treasurer Janet
Cowell released its debt affordability report Friday. It found the state could
issue $471 million in new debt this year and another $232 million by mid-2014
and keep annual debt service to no more than 4 percent of state operating
The report says the state is slightly
below the 4 percent cap. A year ago, the state was slightly above.
Legislators and the governor review
the report while making borrowing decisions for buildings and roads.
The report says there's no extra
capacity to issue state transportation bonds until next year.
