The State of California is the most populous state in the nation, with 37.8 million residents, representing 12% of the total U.S. population. California also benefits from a broad, diverse, and wealthy economy, with an estimated gross domestic product (GDP) of $1.8 trillion in 2013, accounting for 13% of the nation’s GDP. Unemployment was 9.8% as of December 2012, above the nation’s average of 7.8%
The 2013D Bonds are being issued to (i) fund construction of certain projects of the Judicial Council of California, (ii) pay capitalized interest on the 2013D Bonds, and (iii) pay the costs of issuance of the 2013D Bonds. The 2013E Bonds are being issued to (i) refund a portion of the State Public Works Board’s bonds previously issued to fund certain projects of the Department of Mental Health, and (ii) pay the costs of issuance of the 2013E Bonds.
The 2013D and 2013E Bonds are being separately issued and secured under separate indentures. Each Series will be secured by a first pledge of Revenue, which consists primarily of Base Rental to be paid by the agency participating in each Series under the terms of a Facility Lease for each Series. Each Series is also secured by a first pledge of amounts on deposit in funds related to such Series, as well as by a Master Indenture Reserve Fund which may be drawn upon in the event Revenue available under the Indenture for a Series is insufficient to pay debt service on that Series.
After several consecutive years in which the state faced projected budget deficits, the governor’s budget proposal estimates that the state will end fiscal 2012 – 2013 with a positive reserve. In addition, the proposed budget expects to end fiscal year 2014 with a $1 billion reserve. The state’s portion of the California public employees’ retirement system (CalPERS) is funded at 79%, based on the latest actuarial valuation.
The state’s preliminary assessment of the impact of sequestration on its general fund is that it will have minimal impact under current law and policy. Although the state had been scheduled to receive about $367 million in federal BABs subsidy payments for fiscal 2013, the state treasurer’s office estimates that its subsidy receipt will be reduced by about $15.3 million under sequestration.
The Bonds are rated A2 by Moody’s, A– by S&P and BBB+ by Fitch.
