Natural resource extraction is a key component of many Western states’ economies and often generates a sizeable share of state revenue. However, natural resources are finite, the price of energy commodities is increasingly unpredictable, and revenues are volatile and tough for state forecasters to accurately predict. As a result, many states have created severance tax-based sovereign wealth funds to set aside a share of today’s revenue in order to generate investment earnings for state use in the future. In this webinar, Patrick Murray of The Pew Charitable Trusts will present findings and policy recommendations from a new issue brief titled “From Volatile Severance Taxes to Sustained Revenue: Key Recommendations to Improve State Sovereign Wealth Funds,” outlining challenges and opportunities for state policymakers in energy-producing states.

How can state leaders build the public’s confidence in government if the citizenry doesn’t understand how state government works? Although there has traditionally been a reasonable amount taught in schools about the federal level—checks and balances; how a bill becomes a law; and so on—students learn little about the policies, politics and management of states and localities. Fortunately, there’s a growing civics education movement, at both K-12 and university levels, to expand students' understanding about the entities that most closely touch their lives. This FREE CSG eCademy webcast will explore the challenges and benefits of civics education both inside and outside the classroom.

Some states are implementing policies to increase the use of long-acting reversible contraception, known as LARCs, among Medicaid enrollees. LARCs—intrauterine devices, or IUDs, and subdermal contraceptive implants—are highly effective forms of birth control, with pregnancy rates of less than 1 percent within the first year. A five-year Colorado pilot program documented a 48 percent reduction in the state’s teen birth and abortion rates. This FREE CSG eCademy webcast will explore programs and policies related to LARC use in Colorado, South Carolina and Illinois.
