- Moody's downgrades Puerto Rico's GO bond rating by a big three notches to B2 from Ba2, and cut ratings on the commonwealth's other debt as well in wake of last week's passage of a law allowing public corporations to defer or reduce debt payments.
- "Puerto Rico’s new law marks the end of the commonwealth’s long history of taking actions needed to support its debt. It signals a depleted capacity for revenue increases and austerity measures, and a new preference for shifting fiscal pressures to creditors."
- MBIA (MBI -0.6%), Assured Guaranty (AGO -3.1%)
