BRADENTON, Fla. — Fitch Ratings expects to assign a BBB-minus rating to bankrupt Jefferson County, Ala.'s $105 million of general obligation warrants.

The warrants, similar to bonds, will be issued to replace the county's outstanding Series 2001B GOs, which are currently in default and held by liquidity providers JPMorgan and Bayerische Landesbank Gironzentrale. Pricing information has not been made available.
