Introduction

Forty-six states began fiscal year 2021 on July 1, 2020. New York began its fiscal year on April 1, Texas begins its fiscal year on Sept. 1, and Alabama and Michigan begin theirs on Oct. 1. As of July 1, 42 states had enacted budgets for FY 2021. Sixteen of those states enacted a biennial budget during their 2019 legislative session.
