From the press release:
Despite receiving funds from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, state fiscal conditions deteriorated for nearly every state during fiscal 2009, according to the National Governors Association (NGA) and the National Association of State Budget Officers (NASBO).

In the biannual report released today, The Fiscal Survey of States, NGA and NASBO found the economic recession, which began in December 2007, has significantly dampened the outlook for upcoming fiscal years, with more than half of states experiencing negative budget growth in fiscal 2009 and nearly three-quarters recommending fiscal 2010 budgets with negative growth.
