A stong yearlong initiative reporting on the fiscal challenges in states is under way by the Associated Press and the Associated Press Managing Editors.
It's powerful content, being produced by AP bureaus in all 50 states in some cases working with member newspapers.
Today's front page features the latest Broken Budgets story, on states targeting workers. Another is coming Sunday, on jobs and taxes.
Look for Broken Budgets in the Centre Daily Times this year. It will spark conversations.
