This is a projection of the financial needs of the State of Washington over the next three biennial periods. It is intended to serve the practical need of observing current issues of state appropriations and financing in terms of apparent short-range trends. At the outset, it should be made clear that this effort is highly tentative. At the time of writing, basic data with respect to the trends that influence levels of governmental activity, both locally and statewide, fall far short of a desirable base for an accurate projection. Also, several possibilities for federal action which directly influence state and local outlays remain speculative.
