The article focuses on the annual capital debt and obligations report released by New York City Comptroller William Thompson, which states that New York City will edge closer to the legal limit of its borrowing capacity during the next three years. Thompson said the city's additional borrowing capacity will shrink to $4.69 billion in 2008 from $7.61 billion this year as a result of it entering into new capital contracts faster than it is retiring debt. The city also has an additional $500 million of debt-incurring capacity remaining outside of the GO cap.
