In its much-anticipated "State Budget Update: Spring 2012," the National Conference of State Legislatures analyzes the financial trends and conditions of the country's state budgets.State fiscal conditions continue to improve at a slow and steady pace.  A spring 2012 survey of state legislative fiscal officers found revenue performance remains positive and expenditures in most states are stable.  And for the first time since before the Great Recession, a number of states are projecting to end the fiscal year with small unobligated balances.Despite this encouraging news, a degree of uncertainty still lingers over state budgets.  Concerns about unemployment levels, potential federal deficit reduction actions, spending pressures and global economic events, are contributing to a cautious state budget outlookThe authors of the report will share their insights, discuss patterns and reveal what the results of the survey say about the current state of state budgets.
