Today, increases in expenditures are creating tremendous strains

on the financial resources of state and local governments. As these

demands for services increase, the state and local governments continuously

find their financial resources incapable of bending to meet

these needs. Currently state and local governments together combined

spend twice as much as the federal government to provide public

services to the citizens. Education, roads, welfare, public health,

hospitals, police, sanitation are all state and local responsibilities

with the cost of providing these services falling primarily upon state

and local sources of revenue. Consequently, state and local taxes

have been raised almost to the saturation point and the bases of old

taxes have had to be enlarged.
