New Jersey Credit Outlook Revised to Negative by Fitch

New Jersey’s credit outlook was revised to negative by Fitch Ratings, which cited budget strains and ballooning retirement costs.

Fitch joined Moody’s Investors Service and Standard & Poor’s, which also have a negative outlook on Garden State debt. New Jersey has about $2.4 billion in outstanding general-obligation bonds, according to Fitch.
