A government performance analysis released Monday gives Wisconsin a passing grade.
Academics drawn from across the country and journalists from Governing magazine authored the Government Performance Project.
Wisconsin gets a B- overall. More specifically, the state got a B on people management, B- on money management, C in infrastructure management and B- on information management.
The report says the financial downturn of the last few years has left states with ailing tax systems, neglected infrastructure and aging work forces.
It says that many states struggle with basic flaws in their tax systems, bringing their governments too little money to pay for everything from roads to health care to schools.
