This week at CBPP, we focused on food assistance, state budgets, and federal taxes.
On food assistance, Zoë Neuberger testified before a House committee on accuracy and integrity in the school meal programs and WIC.
On state budgets, Michael Leachman pointed out that Kansas’ own projections show that its massive tax cuts likely won’t generate an economic boom. Michael Mitchell explained the consequences of funding cuts to higher education and described how public tuition and student debt levels have risen substantially since the recession.
On federal taxes, Chuck Marr and Brandon DeBot explained that the House approach to tax “extenders” is fiscally irresponsible in an updated report and blog post.
