It highlights articles on online access to government spending data, local government budgeting challenges and opportunities, spending on infrastructure, pensions, the federal budget and deficit, the EPA’s budget history, and more…We plan to ring in the new year with Advancing Urban Policy articles related to Economic Development (January), followed by Community Development (February) and Nonprofit (March).
