Barclays To Finance Detroit's Exit From Bankruptcy

DAVID GREENE, HOST:

NPR's Business News begins in the city of Detroit. Barclays Capital has agreed to provide $275 million to finance Detroit's operations as that city emerges from bankruptcy. Part of that funding will be used to retire a $120 million loan from Barclays. It will also go towards paying some creditors. The rest will be invested in public improvements aimed at reversing the cities decline. A judge still has to approve the plan before Detroit can receive the financing.
