S&P says U.S. credit ratings unaffected by bipartisan budget act
(Reuters) - Standard & Poor's Ratings Services said on Tuesday that the credit ratings on the United States are unaffected by the bipartisan budget deal that passed the House last week and is now awaiting a final vote in the Senate.
The AA-plus long-term rating with a stable outlook remains unchanged, the rating agency said in a statement.
The measure cleared a key procedural hurdle in the Senate earlier on Tuesday that all but assured its final passage later this week.
