If Republicans can maintain their majority in the US House while also winning the Senate (and maybe the Presidency) we will likely see a dramatic decrease in the size and scope of the Federal Government. Some of the items being talked about as cuts from the Federal Budget would need to be absorbed at the state level. This, in turn, means that state governments could end up growing. The shifting of services from one sector of government to another may not have a large impact on the bigger states who already have that large tax-supported infrastructure. However, in states that have part-time legislatures, more oversight means more legislation and more time spent in the respective capitols.
