Winter 2019 Conference Highlights

“State of the State” Budgets

The January Forum will feature Corina Eckl's annual “State of the State” budgets, which examines each State’s balance sheet and explores their financial strategies in detail. Ms. Eckl’s intimate knowledge of State budgets make this presentation a perennial favorite, especially as budget news continues to improve. With Federal Tax Reform and Internet taxes changing the picture for State revenues, this is a critical time for legislatures to imagine the future for their constituents.

Central and Latin America

Central and Latin America also are on the next agenda and the Forum will hear expert reports on the political, social, and economic situations in Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua, Venezuela, and El Salvador. These regions are wracked by political and social instability, in fact, the cities with the world’s highest homicide rates are nearly all in Latin America. The Forum will examine the effects of transnational crime on the States, consider how US policies on trade and immigration affect the region, and examine the implications for the States from these policies.
