Fiscal Federalism Initiative

Fiscal Federalism Initiative



Pew's Fiscal Federalism Initiative is currently exploring the impact of federal deficit reduction on the states by investigating: 

  • The sensitivity of state budgets to changes in federal spending;
  • The interconnectedness of federal and state tax policies;
  • How federal regulatory policy has a fiscal impact on states; and
  • The impact of federal tax and spending policies on state economies and the potential indirect effect on state finances.

Our original, non-partisan research gives both state and federal policy makers the information they need to make informed fiscal decisions.
