2 Generic State Fiscal Outlook “Even if the economy enters a sustained recovery, the tight fiscal squeeze on public services is certain to persist for several years. Over the long term, an aging population and an outdated tax structure means that ______, like other states, is expected to face a mounting structural deficit, where annual growth in revenue is incapable of keeping pace with the annual cost of funding basic public services.” – State Tax Notes ( )
