Main article: California government sector lobbying

For 2007 and 2008, Solano County spent $163,218 on lobbying the California legislature.[8]

Public Pensions

Moody's Investors Service downgraded its rating of Solano County’s pension obligation bonds from A1 from Aa3. The review and change in rating criteria for pension obligation bonds by Moody’s Investors Services was prompted by actions of the City of Stockton in its bankruptcy process and other at-risk cities that have issued pension obligation bonds.[9]
