OREANDA-NEWS. S&P Global Ratings placed its 'A+' long-term rating on George County, Miss.' general obligation (GO) debt outstanding on CreditWatch with negative implications given a lack of timely information.

This action follows repeated attempts by S&P Global Ratings to obtain timely information of satisfactory quality to maintain our rating on the securities, in accordance with our applicable criteria and policies. Failure to receive the requested information by Oct. 11, 2016 will likely result in our withdrawal of the affected rating, preceded, in accordance with our policies, by any change to the rating that we consider appropriate, based on available information. If we do not receive the requested information within 15 days of our CreditWatch action, we will likely suspend the rating. However, if, after placement of the rating on CreditWatch, we receive information that we consider sufficient and of satisfactory quality, we will conduct a review and take a rating action within 90 days of the CreditWatch placement.
