Net State Costs

The state budget is funded by several types of revenue, including taxes, funds from the federal government, and departmental revenues such as licensing and other fees. The "Net State Costs" here subtract federal and departmental revenues from budget totals. These are estimates, based on the best available data. During the recent recession In FY 2009-FY 2011, there was a steep but temporary drop in net state health care costs due federal recovery funds made available to states. For more information on calculating net cost, see explanation here.
