Republican Ohio Treasurer Josh Mandel says he’s preserved the state’s triple-A credit rating while reducing his budget by $1.2 million in his first year in office.

Critics have said that’s the same rating that the Ohio fund has received for 16 years. But Mandel says given the downgrade for the US economy and the volatile economic climate across the world, this is a big deal.
