FY 2021 State Budget Status

5/20/2020

Introduction

Forty-six states will begin fiscal year (FY) 2021 on July 1, 2020. New York begins 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 May 28, 32 states have enacted budgets for FY 2021. Sixteen of those states enacted a biennial budget during their 2019 legislative session. As COVID-19 has impacted state fiscal situations, some states have adopted measures to prevent a shutdown if there were no budget in place by the start of the new fiscal year. These include the adoption of base budgets and continuing resolutions.
