Delay decisions regarding Collective Bargaining or significant ongoing expenditures until after 1/15/08;The Governor will soon declare a fiscal emergency;Mid-year cuts will be a reality;State of the State message delivered 1/8/08;The Preliminary State Budget will be released on January 10th.
Regarding multi-year forecasting, the focus has to be on the current plus one additional year only.The states fiscal situation is too volatile and unstable to project further.Until housing, energy, construction and unemployment begin to move in a more positive direction, the states revenue position and cash will remain unstable which will affect Proposition 98.
In the creation of a multi-year forecast using BE, create a projection using the 4.3% COLA (sourced from the SSC Projection Dartboard), and another reflecting a 0% COLA.Produces what if? analysis of alternative scenarios.
