Standard and Poor’s Praises Iowa’s stability

In September, Standard and Poor’s, the world’s foremost credit analyst, gave Iowa their highest rating, “AAA.” Standard and Poor’s praised Iowa’s stability, as well as the Legislature’s efforts to diversify the economy and our commitment to the state’s “rainy day fund.” We’re one of only 11 states to achieve this best-possible rating, so it’s a real vote of confidence in our bipartisan efforts.

Why Jones County?
