Jim Martin Tables

The Jim Martin table is an homage to Jim Martin, a long-time director of federal relations at the National Governors Association and a big supporter of FFIS in its early days. He requested the table because he wanted to show changes in federal funding for major programs on one sheet of paper. We’re told he carried it wherever he went, including Washington, DC’s metro, where he was seen distributing it to anyone who was interested. Alas, Jim is gone but his eponymous table lives on.
