Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Most, if not all, US states are forbidden in their constitutions from running a deficit.
But sometimes they do or not? What for is the ability to issue bonds, if you are not allowed to run a deficit?

I'm asking because there were reports of budget shortfalls in several US states. If they can't run deficits, in case of a surprising drop in tax revenue, they have to cut immensely in their spending?
