Forty-six states begin fiscal year (FY) 2014 on July 1, 2013. As of June 30, 45 states have enacted budgets for FY 2014 (including 3 states that enacted biennial budgets during 2012 legislative sessions). Legislatures in some states have passed budget bills that are awaiting the governor's signature.
