What is shocking to me is that there are 12 states with no shortfall.
Note: Some Financial Times features require a subscription.

If you click the supposedly “no gap” states, you actually see they aren’t balanced but simply have no data. So the chart legend is misleading in that regard. If you look more closely, some of the states have some data and they had shortfalls in prior years indicating they likely have not yet balanced their budget either. So our whole country is really not doing well with their finances.

And I’m shocked to learn that there are some Financial Time subscriptions that do not require a subscription.

What is shocking to me is that all but 12 states have shortfalls. Well not shocking…but a significant problem.

Looks like Mississippi has a double-digit (percentage) budget gap to me: http://www.statehealthfacts.org/profileind.jsp?cat=1&sub=151&rgn=26
