A federal stimulus program to help stabilize state budgets is coming to a close tomorrow. The government provided some $90 billion in emergency funds to help state government get past collapsing tax revenues, and help pay for such services as education and health care. Now, states are having to slash spending.

Adam Allington reports for Marketplace, that states are bracing for some painfully difficult decisions. When it comes to making some budget cuts, their hands are tied.

Listen for the report tonight on Marketplace, starting at 6 p.m.
