Final Report of the State Budget Crisis Task Force
Richard Ravitch (ed); Paul Volcker (ed)
The State Budget Crisis Task Force was created in the aftermath of the global financial crisis to examine the increasingly perilous position of many states. In its initial report, the Task Force concluded that, ńˇýThe existing trajectory of state spending, taxation, and administrative practices cannot be sustained. The basic problem... is structural. The time to act is now.ńˇŁ A confluence of trends and circumstances placed state and local governments in a position of fiscal instability and undermined the ability of their economies to compete in the global marketplace. The Task Force studied the financial conditions in six states: California, Illinois, New Jersey, New York, Texas and Virginia. Some of the most serious problems detected were: Cash-based budgeting, which obscured state fiscal condition; the absence of meaningful multiyear financial planning; and budgets and financial reports that failed to set out the future costs of financial obligations already made. Without deep-seated reform in state government fiscal affairs or federal recognition of the strains on state and local budgets, the future health of Americańˇ╗s communities and its economy are at great risk. This Final Report provides recommendations for solving and preventing financial problems. Figures. This is a print on demand report.
