Date of Defense 1974-06-05 Availability restricted AbstractToday, 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.
