SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 25: STATE AND LOCAL REVENUE

Profile America — Sunday, November 25th.  The ups and downs of the nation's general economic situation have had a great impact on state and local government revenues.  In the year between 2009 and 2010, state and local governments brought in nearly $3.2 trillion in revenue — that's an annual increase of 51.4 percent.  In five states, spending on education comprised more than a third of total spending — Arkansas, Texas, Vermont, Virginia and West Virginia.  And New Hampshire led the nation in state and local property tax revenue as a percentage of general revenue at just over one-third.  Two other states, Connecticut and New Jersey, had percentages of more than 25 percent.  You can find more facts about America from the U.S. Census Bureau, online at www.census.gov.
