The federal government and state laws may control the local governments in raising their revenues. This is a power that you have with the local government. The state must be aware of the financial needs of local government and provide support accordingly. It is about the jurisdiction of the state if we see that there is a need to raise taxes or if there is a need to provide more services in local government. It is still dependent on and controlled if the revenue of the states is high or not, adjustments must be made.
