REMI would like to thank everyone who was able to attend our “The Fiscal Impacts of COVID-19 on State and Local Budgets” webinar that we presented in April.
On Thursday, June 4th from 2:00 to 3:00 p.m. (ET), REMI Economist Leon Zhang will be providing an updated version of this webinar that expands upon the pandemic’s effect on the financial sector and analyzes how the fiscal outlook has shifted in just a matter of weeks.
This webinar discussion evaluates the impact of the COVID-19 outbreak on budgetary planning before exploring how state and local governments are attempting to mitigate the anticipated economic and fiscal deficits.
As COVID-19 progresses throughout the country, Mr. Zhang is prepared to use the REMI Tax-PI model to examine the questions surrounding fiscal resiliency, budgets, and revenue. With safety measures fluctuating on a state-by-state basis, it is important for state and local governments to monitor their finances in order to best serve their region and constituents.
Mr. Zhang will also be demonstrating how to forecast prospective scenarios that could continue to alter the fiscal landscape, impact tax revenues, and upend expenditure decisions during this presentation.
