Community Investment & Accountability Policies

Are states' efforts to promote financial access and economic development inclusive? Are states' tax and spending decisions fair and transparent?

There are a number of investments and regulatory actions a states can take to ensure that all residents have access to mainstream financial products and services, and that economic development activities are broadly dispersed in the community.  In addition, states can promote judicious expenditures by being transparent about the costs and impacts of their tax expenditure decisions.
