Every year, the Urban Institute produces hundreds of reports, briefs, webcasts, and blog posts. In this publication, Urban’s State and Local Finance Initiative brings together the latest evidence-based research, data, and solutions with direct relevance for analysts crafting and deliberating over state budgets. Topics include: Medicaid and the Affordable Care Act, criminal justice and corrections, education, social safety net programs, economic and workforce development, public employee pensions, state finances, pay for success projects, demographic and housing trends, and the 2016 election. This bulletin will help budget analysts evaluate agency requests, make recommendations, and respond to questions from their governors and legislatures.
