ABSTRACT
The article gives information about Massachusetts' qualified bond program. Moody's Investors Service Inc. yesterday revised the outlook to stable from negative on Massachusetts' qualified bond program following a similar action last week on the commonwealth's credit. Moody's rates the qualified bond program Aa3. The revision affects $1.1 billion of outstanding long-term debt issued by 18 participating municipalities and school districts. These communities are generally lower-rated credits that benefit from a higher state rating when they sell state-qualified bonds.
