* Lowered rating on Illinois' GO bonds amid political impasse that has prevented progress on growing pension deficit, increasing backlog of unpaid bills

* Says downgrade to Baa3 for Illinois' GO bonds is consistent with the state's "intensifying pressure" from pension liabilities ‍​

* Says Illinois' negative outlook is consistent with its potential for additional credit weakening because of a continuing political impasse Source text - (bit.ly/2rpHfJC)
