Chapter 1231 of the Texas Government Code directs issuers of state securities to report their
securities transactions to the Bond Review Board (BRB). Chapter 1231 also requires the BRB to
report the data to the governor, lieutenant governor, the speaker of the house, and each member
of the legislature in an annual report within 90 days of the end of each state fiscal year.
The data on the BRB’s website is compiled from information reported to the BRB from various sources and has not been independently verified. The reported debt and defeasance data of state agencies may vary from actual debt outstanding, and the variance for a specific issuer could be substantial.
State debt data compiled does not include all installment purchase obligations, but certain lease-purchase obligations are included. In addition, SECO LoanSTAR Revolving Loan Program and certain other revolving loan program debt and privately-placed loans are not included. Outstanding debt excludes debt for which sufficient funds have been escrowed to retire the debt either from proceeds of refunding debt or from other sources
Future debt issuance is based on estimates supplied by each issuing agency. Future debt service on variable rate, commercial paper, and other short-term and demand debt is estimated on the basis of interest rate and refinancing assumptions described in the report. Actual future data could be affected by changes in legislative and oversight direction, agency financing decisions, prevailing interest rates, market conditions, and other factors that cannot be predicted. Consequently, actual future data could differ from the estimates, and the difference could be substantial. The BRB assumes no obligation to update any such estimate of future data.
Historical data and trends presented are not intended to predict future events or continuing trends, and no representation is made that past experience will continue in the future.
This website refers to credit ratings. An explanation of the significance of the ratings may be obtained from the rating agencies furnishing the ratings. Ratings reflect only the respective views of each rating agency. In reporting ratings herein, the BRB does not intend to endorse the ratings or make any recommendation to buy, sell or hold securities.
