In January, the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) in Washington, D.C., released its State Budget Reform Toolkit.  Utilizing ALEC model legislation, the toolkit provides more than 20 recommendations to modernize state budgeting, improve budget transparency, control costs, and improve government efficiency.

The need to reform state budgeting is more vital than ever before.  As federal stimulus funds recede, states will grapple with even-larger budget gaps.  States need innovative budgeting strategies to address these new economic challenges -- without resorting to economically damaging tax increases.

ALEC's State Budget Reform Toolkit was designed to assist in prioritizing, and more efficiently delivering, core government services through the Jeffersonian principles of free markets, limited government, federalism, and individual liberty. 

The Lynde and Harry Bradley Foundation in Milwaukee supports ALEC's work on state budget reform.
