Fiscal Survey of the States Fall 2009

Source: National Governors Association, National Association of State Budget Officers, December 2009

From the summary:
States are currently facing one of the worst, if not the worst, fiscal periods since the Great Depression. Fiscal conditions significantly deteriorated for states during fiscal 2009, with the trend expected to continue through fiscal 2010 and even into 2011 and 2012. The severe national recession drastically reduced tax revenues from every revenue source during fiscal 2009 and revenue collections are expected to continue their decline in fiscal 2010. As state revenue collections historically lag behind any national economic recovery, state revenues will remain depressed throughout fiscal 2010 and likely be sluggish into fiscal years 2011 and 2012
