Dr. Sian Mughan prepared this presentation for the 2020 Budget Breakfast held on January 15, 2020.
Dr. Mughan is assistant professor in the School of Public Affairs at Arizona State University. Her research interests include local government finance, fiscal federalism, criminal justice policy, and institutions. Some of her research has shown how tax and budgetary structures impact equity outcomes, while other papers focus on how fiscal stress in local governments leads to revenue seeking behavior by actors in state criminal justice systems.
Her academic study, “Estimating the Manufacturing Employment Impact of Eliminating the Tangible Personal Property Tax: Evidence from Ohio” is one of the few peer-reviewed reports on this topic.
