State and Local Finance Initiative: Equipping Citizens and Their Leaders to Make Informed Choices About Their Fiscal Future

Grant Year: 2016


Kim Rueben will lead an effort to improve the analytical capacity of state policy officials to understand the implications of choices on tax and spending priorities and to optimize their tax systems to support growth and other policy goals. She will develop a series of fiscal forecasting tools that will enable public officials, analysts, journalists, and others to assess how changes in tax and spending policies will affect the future finances of state governments. The project’s findings will appear in a series of web-based tools as well as a series of reports and policy briefs.
