Well, states have their own income that comes from the residents of the state usually on taxes to pay for the services offer in that particular
The federal government also give money to the state to ease the burden of paying for services.
But right now these funds has been cut, leaving the states to fend for themselves.
for states that generate a good sizable revenue from their residents they have not problem with shortage of federal funds.
But many other states do not have the same opportunity and are more dependent on federal funding.
I guess since this has been going on for a while more and more the states are coming forward to voice their needs for federal funds and what has not
been given to them so far.
