2020 Budget Breakfast 

Please join us for the 7th annual Budget Breakfast! The morning will include our yearly recap of the governor's proposed budget.

Our keynote speaker is Sian Mughan, assistant professor in the School of Public Affairs at Arizona State University. Her research interests include local government finance, fiscal federalism, criminal justice policy, and institutions. Some of her research has shown how tax and budgetary structures impact equity outcomes, while other papers focus on how fiscal stress in local governments leads to revenue seeking behavior by actors in state criminal justice systems.

Sian will discuss the business personal property tax and her study, "Estimating the Manufacturing Employment Impact of Eliminating the Tangible Personal Property Tax: Evidence from Ohio", to help us understand how proposed cut to West Virginia's tax could harmfully impact our budget and how we fund our school systems.
