The Fiscal Link provides a monthly look at news and reports from NCSL, state legislative fiscal offices, the federal government, and other independent groups.

Included in September's issue are links from three states, Maryland, Montana, Wyoming, plus the District of Columbia. The September 2021 edition also highlights the latest NCSL Fiscal Brief, "Back to School, Back to Sales Tax Holidays," which provides examples of states that have planned sales tax holidays in 2021. Also included in this edition is an examination by the U.S. Government Accountability Office of the increased cash-on-hand strategy Treasury implemented to deal with the uncertainty of the pandemic, and how states are planning to use fiscal year 2021 budget surpluses by the National Assoication of State Budget Officers.
