Dear Finance Officers (AK, AZ, AR, KS, KY, OK, VT, WV, and WI):
Your colleague in Kentucky writes:
I have been asked by a state legislator to gather information on how other states are dealing with recent state budget cuts. Per Grapevine’s record of changes in state support, I am focusing on Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, Kansas, Oklahoma, Vermont, West Virginia, and Wisconsin.
Are you aware of any specific actions these states are doing to adjust to the reductions in state support (layoffs, furloughs, eliminating programs, etc.)?
