New Podcast: Ron Snell of the National Conference of State Legislatures – Addressing State Budget Shortfalls
May 6, 2009
An issue that taxpayers and officials across the country are following this year is state budgets. In January, the Tax Foundation released a report on the issue, looking at the 45 states with budget shortfalls.
In this edition of the Tax Policy Podcast, Director of State Projects Joseph Henchman talks with Ron Snell of the National Conference of State Legislatures (NCSL), a respected national organization that provides research, technical assistance, and opportunities for state policymakers and their staffs to exchange ideas on state issues. Snell discusses a new report that shows additional data about state budgets from the first few months of the year, as well as what kinds of actions states have taken in addressing their shortfalls so far and why so many states are in dire budget situations right now.
