S&P cuts South Amboy, New Jersey's GO bonds rating to A-minus
Sept 11 (Reuters) - Standard & Poor's Ratings Services said on Wednesday it cut the long-term and underlying ratings on South Amboy, New Jersey's general obligation bonds to A-minus from A-plus. The outlook is negative.
The rating downgrade reflects the city's continuing dependence on emergency notes for operations, the rating agency said in a statement.
S&P said the negative outlook includes the city's limited financial flexibility and the possibility for more operating deficits along with growing emergency note issuance.
