The Fiscal Cliff and the States

Presented by the Intergovernmental Affairs Committee

2:30-4:30 p.m. Dec. 2

The American economy stands at the edge of a precipice created by expiring tax cuts and a host of spending reductions that could collectively shave $600 billion from the U.S. gross domestic product next year. This session will feature a presentation and discussion led by Barry Anderson, deputy executive director of the National Governors Association, on the potential impact of the fiscal cliff and the prospects for congressional action to forestall it. Anderson previously served as acting director of the Congressional Budget Office, as well as in senior leadership roles in the Office of Management and Budget, the International Monetary Fund, and the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development.
