Rich States, Poor States: American Legislative Exchange Ratings

by | May 11, 2022 | Opinion, Special Alerts

The United States is comprised of individual states, each having their own sovereignty.
The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.

States can deal with different issues in the fashion their people and representatives choose.
Issues like taxes, spending, regulations and their impact on economic outlooks and personal freedoms.
Consequently, people are able to move to states that reflect their views and needs.
With few exceptions, people generally prefer to live in states that have a lower tax burden
This desire is evident in analyzing patterns of people moving from state to state.

American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC), works to develop fiscal policy solutions for the states.
They compare the states on matters such as tax rates, regulatory burdens and labor policies.
