Successful Budgeting: A Collaboration of the Western United States

By: Dr. Jennifer Robinson, Ph.D.

The California Journal of Politics and Policy publishes, in cooperation with the Kem C. Gardner Policy Institute, the Western State Budget Reports each year.  In these reports, you can read about how Alaska changed the oil tax, how several states have legalized marijuana and the effect on revenue, and what states have yet to recover from the Great Recession. The reports are authored by faculty from 14 universities in the west, representing Alaska, Arizona, California, Colorado, Hawaii, Montana, Nevada, New Mexico, Oregon, Utah, Washington, and Wyoming.
