Outlk-1 This week, GOVERNING is hosting our annual Outlook in the States and Localities conference here in Washington. 

As usual, we'll be taking an in-depth look at where states, cities and counties stand -- and what the biggest issues will be in the coming year.

Oh, and -- don't know if you heard -- but there's a new occupant in the White House. That's sure to make this year's Outlook conversation even more interesting.

We'll bring you any interesting notes and tidbits from this week's conference.
