Congratulations To Governor Gregoire, Speaker Chopp, And Majority Leader Brown
Washington State News

Two ratings agencies, Moody’s and Fitch, just lowered the state’s bond rating. (A third, Standard & Poors, left the rating alone.)
The state’s ratings are still relatively high — we aren’t Illinois or California yet — but these lower ratings do show us where we may be headed.
No doubt these three leaders are spending all their time getting our state’s finances back into balance.
(Did you know that Majority Leader Brown has a PhD in economics (!) from Colorado? I have known that for several years, but I still find it hard to believe.)
