In December 2009, The National Conference of State Legislatures (NCSL) released its State Budget Update: November 2009. The report shows that states closed budget gaps in excess of $145 billion while crafting their FY 2010 budgets only for a new round of shortfalls to open totaling $28.2 billion. In light of these budget gaps, NCSL has compiled this series of tables that document the measures, both proposed and enacted, that states are taking to close their budget gaps. It is based on data collected from various media and government outlets. States are taking a variety of approaches to close their budget gaps and the approaches include both cutting budgets and generating new revenues. The tables are organized first by budget measures and revenue measures, and then the tables are organized by topic.
