Increasing numbers of municipal governments can no longer perform the functions associated with local government due to fiscal distress. Few attempts are made to measure the health of a municipality before decline sets in, and the adequacy of regular monitoring systems is uncertain. State governments will have to address the causes of fiscal distress, which will have a significant impact on state-local government relations.
