Paul Burka has some interesting analysis (Spending binge contributed to the structural deficit) that concludes that the state’s ongoing budget problems are “the result of a triple whammy of the unprecedented drop of sales tax redeipts, the use of stimulus funds that were a short-term blessing but a long-term curse,  and $5.3 billion in education spending, a lot of which was throwing money at schools.” It’s definitely work a look.
