While sales and property taxes rose, corporate taxes were down. Real exports rose by 5.2 percent during 2011 while real imports grew 3.8 percent (Economic Report of The President 2012, p. 60). The efficiency of the safety net programs has been emphasized upon in the report. Policy developments on the key components of the safety net are mentioned. 9.6 percent households received Unemployment Insurance in 2010 (Economic Report of The President 2012, p. 202). State would experiment with a program named ‘Bridge to Work’ in which people facing frictional unemployment while changing jobs would be taken by private employers and compensated for up to 38 hours of work per week for a period of eight weeks.
