New York gets a B-

New York State government as a whole gets a B- from the Government Performance Project, which rates all 50 state governments. That's not as good as Utah or Virginia with their A- grades, but better than California with its C-.

This report appears to grade on executive performance primarily, so the only area in which our legislative dysfunction turns up is in their comments on New York's usually late budgets. Still, it's good to see some largely positive if still mixed news about the state we all pay taxes.
