Debt & Investments

Like other large states, Massachusetts manages billions of dollars in tax receipts and federal grants over the course or a fiscal year.  Cash inflows and outflows each year are in the tens of billions of dollars.

While the Governor and Legislature work together to balance the state's operating budget, the State Treasurer's Office ensures that the state's funds are invested prudently, its cash flow needs are met, and the capital budget is properly funded on an as-needed basis through the issuance of bonds.
