"The Changing Face of Government - May 18, 2016"
State and local government budgets have all but recovered from the Great Recession, but long-term challenges are positioned to constrain the pace of growth ahead. Policymakers are shifting their focus from near-term survival to long-term sustainability, and the actions taken over the next several years at all levels of government will be key in helping to facilitate a rosier outlook for budgets and the economy. This session will focus on those long-term constraints, and take a closer look at what federal, state, and local government officials can do to overcome them.
