Tracy Gordon, senior fellow, testified before the US House of Representatives Committee on the Budget for a hearing on “Why Federal Investments Matter: Stability from Congress to State Capitals.” In her testimony she notes that while states and localities are key economic players and service providers, both are severely tested roles in recessions and other economic shocks–and although federal government often steps in to help states and localities, it could do more.
