Moody’s Investors Service announced that it has downgraded the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority’s $1.2 billion of Proposition C sales tax revenue bonds to Aa3 from Aa2 and $166 million of general revenue bonds to A1 from Aa3.

The downgrade of the bonds reflects the weaker leverage constraint of 1.30 times on the Proposition C lien compared to an effective additional bonds test of 2.46 times for Proposition A bonds and 2.50 times for Measure R bonds.
