Website puts county among top potential municipal bankruptcies

At No. 7, Moore lists Jefferson County, Ala, which is the home to Birmingham.

The county filed for bankruptcy protection in 2011 over a sewer bond debt and has been dealing with the collapse of refinancing that sewer bond debt, Moore writes.

The list also includes the Philadelphia city school district and a host of cities sprinkled across the Midwest, West Coast and Northeast.
