State Government Responses to Municipal Fiscal Distress: A Brave New World for State-Local Intergovernmental Relations

Abstract

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.
