Moody's Downgrades

On May 14, 2003, Moody's Investors Service downgraded the senior debt rating of Mission Energy Holding Company (MEHC) to Caa2 from
B3.  MEHC is a wholly owned indirect subsidiary of Edison International.  Moody's also lowered its credit ratings of MEHC's
subsidiary, Edison Mission Energy (EME) (senior unsecured debt, to B2 from Ba3), and EME's largest subsidiary, Edison Mission Midwest
Holdings Co. (syndicated loan facility, to Ba3 from Ba2).  In addition, Moody's downgraded the credit ratings of Brooklyn Navy Yard
Cogeneration Partners, L.P., a partnership in which an EME subsidiary owns a 50% interest (senior secured debt, to Ba1 from Baa3),
the pass-through bonds related to the sale-leaseback of the Homer City facilities (to Ba2 from Baa3), the pass-through certificates
related to the sale-leaseback of Midwest Generation's Powerton Station and Joliet Station (to B2 from Ba3), the bank credit facility
related to the sale-leaseback of Midwest Generation's Collins facility (to Ba3 from Ba2), and Mission Capital L.P. (monthly income
preferred securities, to Caa1 from B2).  The ratings are no longer under review for possible further downgrade.  The outlook is
stable for the ratings of Brooklyn Navy Yard Cogeneration Partners, L.P. and the pass-through bonds related to the sale-leaseback of
the Homer City facilities.  The outlook is negative for the ratings of MEHC, EME, Edison Mission Midwest Holdings, and the other
affected entities.

These ratings actions do not trigger any defaults or prepayment obligations under MEHC's or EME's credit facilities or those of the
other affected entities.  In particular, these changes do not require any prepayment of indebtedness at Edison Mission Midwest
Holdings.  However, the changed ratings may affect the ability of EME to extend or replace its credit facilities upon expiration and
the ability of Edison Mission Midwest Holdings to extend or refinance its $911 million of debt maturing in December 2003.

In addition, sales of power from EME's First Hydro, Homer City and Midwest Generation projects require credit support, depending upon
market conditions and the strategies adopted for the sale of this power.  EME has previously projected the potential working capital
support for this to be between $100 million and $200 million from time to time during 2003 and currently believes these projections
to be unchanged.

on its behalf by the undersigned thereunto duly authorized.
