“Quick Fixes” To Balance State Budgets

I wanted to briefly comment on this recent (July 17) Wall Street Journal article that mentions how Illinois and California are working to “balance” their budgets:

The article brings to mind a term that I have used before, “quick fixes.”  Sadly, some of the means by which these budgets are apparently being balanced might not even meet the low threshold of a “quick fix.”

Here is another article, from Forbes, with the subtitle, “Some of the games states are playing to plug vast holes in their budget deficits.”
