State Information

State budget websites and analyses are needed for today's citizens to evaluate the efficacy of state and local government activity. This page will include links to state budget websites. Perhaps more importantly during this time of wide-spread budget deficits, it will include links to analyses of those budgets, thus providing citizens with means to assess how government officials and legislators have allocated taxpayer dollars.
