As of October 1, one state has yet to finalize a budget for fiscal 2020. In North Carolina, the governor vetoed the budget on June 28; state law allows spending to continue at current levels until a new budget is enacted.
46 states begin their fiscal year on July 1 (New York begins its fiscal year on April 1, Texas on September 1, and Alabama and Michigan on October 1). Governors in 47 states proposed new budgets for fiscal 2020 (30 states will enact an annual budget, while 17 states will enact a biennial budget covering both fiscal 2020 and fiscal 2021). Last year, 3 states enacted budgets covering both fiscal 2019 and fiscal 2020.
