IGPA's Fiscal Futures Project teams with Volcker Alliance for new 50-state budget analysis project

IGPA's Fiscal Futures Project is a partner with the Volcker Alliance and a dozen other academic institutions in a long-term analysis of state government budgets in all 50 states. Fiscal Futures, which is co-directed by IGPA economists David Merriman and Richard F. Dye, will collect data on the situation on Illinois and four other states that will contribute to the nationwide analysis of state budget clarity and integrity. Merriman is also coordinating the efforts of other University of Illinois partners in the College of Urban Planning and Public Administration at UIC and in the Departments of Economics and Public Administration at UIS.
