The article comments on West Virginia governor Joe Manchin's move to consolidate control over seven of its bonding authorities. Analysts believe that the move will have little impact on bond ratings or day-to-day agency operations. However the move may prove itself more significant in the long term because the authorities issue most state-level debt in West Virginia. Agencies' bond proposals and requests for greater bonding authority now require Manchin's seal of approval before the Legislature can consider them.
