The latest edition of the Tax Policy Center's State and Local Finance Initiative's State Economic Monitor finds that revenue growth is accelerating in most states but many jurisdictions faced strong economic headwinds going into the recent partial government shutdown and potential default. In several states, a decline in public sector jobs was boosting unemployment even before the partial shutdown. The Monitor reviews the health of various aspects of state economies, including employment, housing, state finances, and economic growth.
