No state is really in sound fiscal shape. At least not as you’d define that in private business or for your family.
Makes no difference. We all learned in 2008 that if you go to Congress with a sufficiently butt-puckering Chicken Little tale of impending doom you WILL get a bailout.
Nebraska has a balanced budget requirement and a one-body Unicameral legislature that gets the job done at half the cost and far less time than any other state. I’d challenge most private businesses or families to do as well.
