      Budgeting for the Future:
      Fiscal Planning Tools Can Show the Way

      Almost every state should adopt a much more rigorous approach to their long-term budget planning. This report ranks the states on the degree to which they use ten proven tools to help states chart their fiscal course accurately and make mid-course corrections when needed.
