State of the States 2005

State of the States 2005 (59 pages, PDF), the fifth annual report of stateline.org, covers topics as diverse as public school spending, soaring Medicaid costs, the same-sex marriage controversy, and the reliance on gambling as a revenue source (and its transformation "from sin to godsend"). Short bios of the seven new governors taking office in January 2005, plus three others who took over in 2004 when the incumbent resigned, are included.
