KBRA Releases Research Report – Texas Hospital Districts: A Rating Approach That Reflects Texas Law

May 7, 2019

NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May 7, 2019--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.
