States in Trouble: Bankruptcy, Bailout or Default?

 

Should states in fiscal crisis be able to declare bankruptcy? As California and Illinois hike taxes and slash spending to avert disaster, Congress is faced with growing pressure to rescue ailing state governments. Join us to hear leading scholars discuss the political, policy, and legal concerns surrounding the danger of state bailouts. The panel will present a variety of viewpoints on the pros and cons of bankruptcy and default, and on the tools state governments need to get their fiscal houses in order.
