ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — Maryland’s triple-A bond rating has been affirmed by all three bond rating agencies in preparation for the upcoming sale of general obligation bonds next month.

Treasurer Nancy Kopp made the announcement on Thursday.

Maryland is one of eight states to hold the triple-A rating from all three bond rating agencies.

Standard and Poor’s affirmed Maryland’s rating since 1961, while Moody’s Investors has assigned the rating since 1973. Fitch Ratings has bestowed the rating on Maryland since 1993.
