Digital issues are available of the StateTreasurer's Annual Report from 1995 to 2017. (The 2016-2017 report is the last published by the office of the State Treasurer.)
The Debt Affordability Advisory Committee was created by the legislature in 2004. The committee annually advises the Governor and General Assembly on the estimated debt capacity of the State for the coming 10 years. This report provides the Governor and General Assembly a basis for assessing the impact of future debt issuance on the State’s fiscal position. It enables informed decision making regarding both financing proposals and capital spending priorities.
There are no paper reports.
