Government Budgets

Main Content

Government budgets are currently experiencing significant constraints.  Although there is a significant amount of uncertainty associated with long-term budgetary projections, a number of key trends and drivers will contribute to government budgets constraints for the foreseeable future.  The national and global economy, projected deficits at all levels of government, increasing health care costs, and the costs of retirement benefits will likely impact emergency management directly and indirectly at all levels of government for years to come. This paper attempts to explore some of these key trends and their potential implications on the future emergency management environment.
