The article reports on the selling of 80 million dollars in general obligation bonds by Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. The author mentions that the selling of general bonds is due to the first upgrade from the Standards & Poor's since the agency began rating the city's debt in 1974. According to city finance director and deputy city manager Catherine O'hara, the improved rating from Standard & Poor's validates the city's fiscal philosophy.
