Alabama 19th in federal revenue for state spending

— MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) — A new study ranks Alabama 19th among in the states in the amount of federal funding that goes into the state government's general revenue.

The study by the Tax Foundation says federal funding accounts for 38.2 percent of the state government's revenue in Alabama. Mississippi ranked first at 49 percent and Alaska was 50th at 24 percent.

Tennessee was at 44 percent, Georgia measured 41.1 percent, and Florida came in at 36.9 percent.

The study looked only at a state's tax revenue and did not consider a state's income from investments. It was based on 2011 figures.
