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 outlook.  The 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.
