NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Kroll Bond Rating Agency (KBRA) releases its Texas Hospital Districts: A
Rating Approach That Reflects Texas Law research report, following the
U.S. First Circuit Court of Appeals ruling on March 26 to uphold Judge
Swain’s decision regarding special revenue provisions of the Bankruptcy
Code. Despite this judicial development, KBRA notes that the specific
language within state law is a key consideration for how special
revenues are treated in a bankruptcy.
In this report, KBRA highlights the legal structures—as evidenced in the
Gainesville Hospital District bankruptcy case—that protects limited tax
general obligation bondholders from any disruptions in scheduled
interest or principal on the bonds.
