Louisiana to pay $108 million to refinance Dome bonds

quote:

The $361 million deal will allow the district to pay off the $233 million in bonds, known as "auction-rate securities," that the state purchased when the market for the bonds collapsed in 2008. State Treasurer John Kennedy said the deal would benefit the state by taking the bonds off of unstable, variable interest rates that shot up to about 12 percent. The new bonds will have a fixed rate below 3.4 percent.



quote:

Kennedy, who opposed the deal when it was first proposed by former Gov. Kathleen Blanco, said the deal gets Louisiana out of "one of the worst deals I've seen the state enter into."

Edwards raped Louisiana on those bonds. The lawyers got $30 million.

Yeah, this was a bad move. On the other hand, lot's of people made similar bad moves. Not an excuse though.


I am just waiting for someone to say this was Jindal's fault.

He could have not fricked up the election in 2003, become governor and not Blanco, it is obvioulsy his fault at the most basic level.
