Interstate differences in expenditures and effective tax rates are examined to see whether the pattern of differences has changed substantially over the past 25 years. The results show that there has been only very modest convergence of per capita expenditures and increased variation of effective tax rates. The pattern of state fiscal behavior is remarkably stable. However, by 1987, the variation in both fiscal measures was greater than expected, given the changes in interstate differences in economic conditions over this period.
