Fiscal Strains on State Governments Paperback / softback
Edited by Arthur Horvath
States have different budget cycles, different ways of preparing revenue estimates and forecasts, different requirements concerning their operating and capital budgets, different roles for their governors in the budget process, and different policies concerning the carrying over of operating budget deficits into the next fiscal year.
Although no two state budgets are alike, all fifty states experienced heightened levels of fiscal stress during FY2009 and FY2010.
The national economic recession, which officially lasted from December 2007 to June 2009, led to lower levels of economic activity throughout the nation and reduced state tax revenues.
This book examines the current status of state fiscal conditions and the role of federal assistance in state budgets.
It begins with a brief overview of state budgeting procedures and then provides budgetary data comparing state fiscal conditions in FY2008 to FY2010.
