States’ Long-Term Budget Gaps: Are There Any Solutions?

Nov. 30, 2009

New York State leaders and national experts on state finances explored fiscal problems facing the states and examined potential solutions at the Institute’s first national conference on states’ long-term budget gaps. Nathan closed the day with the presentation of a new paper on the long-term budget gaps facing the states. He argued that one of the best ways out of the overall government fiscal crisis would be to pass the proposed federal legislation that would reform the nation’s health-insurance system.

Nathan's paper: "The Weakening of the States"
