About the Library

State & Local Public Finance Links is a library of resources for planners, policymakers, and researchers to access analysis and information about state and local public finance in the United States. These resources focus primarily on issues around financial challenges state and local governments face with the need to repay accrued liabilities such as retiree pensions and health benefits. This database contains news articles, research publications and reports from researchers and organizations specializing in these issues. It is updated monthly by Penn IUR with input from a variety of experts and stakeholders.
