Class Nine -- January 13, 2017

Original Creator: Howell E. Jackson Current Version: Brett Johnson Show/Hide

In today’s class, we will explore inter-governmental interactions in budgeting. The two principal readings are chapters from Fiscal Challenges offering institutional perspectives on the subject. Please also read the briefing paper on NFIB v. Sebelius, which deals with conditional spending.

Team Assignment: (Teams I & J): The primary readings for this class offer different visions of optimal (or at least possible) fiscal relationships across different levels of government. Please create a short powerpoint presentation explaining hich, if any, of these visions do you find compelling and why?

For additional background, several related briefing papers are including discussing the Unfunded Mandates Act, Federal-State Budget interactions, and State and Municipal Bankruptcies, a topic alluded to in the Wallis & Weingast chapter.
