Nancy Kopp talks bond ratings.

Sheilah Kast talks with State Treasurer Nancy Kopp.

Maryland state treasurer Nancy Kopp warned the House of Delegates Appropriations Committee this month that Maryland is pushing to hold on to its AAA bond rating, as one of the big three bond-rating agencies–Moody’s–has published a negative outlook.

Kopp talks with Sheilah about the rating–and about the tension between Governor Martin O’Malley and Comptroller Peter Franchot, her two colleagues on the Board of Public Works.

And here, in this web extra, they discuss the board’s decision to award a $2.4 billion contract for the prescription drugs of state employees to a Missouri company, Express Scripts.  The current prescription manager is Catalyst, which is based in Rockville, Maryland.
