The Missouri State Budget - How We Stack Up Against the Other States
Have you ever wondered how a state budget is created? Brian Colby, VP of Public Policy for The Missouri Budget Project, will break down the numbers for us - in a way that makes sense and empowers us as citizens and community leaders. Colby will help us understand what goes into a state budget, what doesn't, how Missouri stacks up against other states, and much more. What is The Missouri Budget Project you ask? It's a nonprofit, nonpartisan public policy analysis organization that analyzes the Missouri stat budget, tax, and economic issues. Through its published analyses and educational activities, the Missouri Budget Project is a resource for policymakers, advocates, community leaders, and members of the media. Brought to you by The Junior League of Kansas City, Missouri's Community Conversations & Advocacy Committee. This training is open to Junior League members and non-League members.
