Every year, the Urban Institute produces hundreds of reports, briefings, webcasts, and blog posts. In this publication, Urban’s State and Local Finance Initiative has brought together the latest evidence-based research, data, and solutions with direct relevance for analysts charged with crafting and deliberating over state budgets. Topics include: Medicaid and the Affordable Care Act, criminal justice and corrections, social safety net programs, state finance and tax policy, pay for success and performance measurement, and demographic and housing trends. This bulletin will help budget analysts evaluate agency requests, make recommendations, and respond to questions from their governors and legislatures.
