Fitch Ratings:

    • Reaffirmed their AA+ rating with a “stable outlook.”
    • They stated Michigan has a high level of financial resilience and low long-term liability burdens.
    • Additionally, Michigan’s economy is broad based and marked by stronger diversity than before the last pre-pandemic recession.

Standard & Poor:

    • Reaffirmed their AA rating with a “stable outlook.”
    • They stated Michigan has enacted good budget practices, increased its “rainy day” fund, and is likely to have strong economic performance.
    • Further adding, Michigan has established itself as a leader in testing autonomous vehicles and is benefiting from a strong research presence.
