ABSTRACT
The article presents a study on how administrative authorities in Oregon and Illinois govern the federally supported social service programs, particularly the substance abuse service systems, in times of fiscal crisis. It mentions that the two very dissimilar states responded similarly on financial crisis wherein both state service system priorities became increasingly aligned with federal priorities and priorities of other state. It suggests that after assessment of the crisis, the officials might adopt a routine of their priority and administrative changes. It says that through reassessment of the crisis-induced changes, any unnecessary changes that has been made can be modified. However, local and state authorities have limited capacities to deal with fiscal crisis.
