Abstract

Das Land Mecklenburg-Vorpommern muss in Zukunft mit deutlich geringeren Zahlungen aus den im Rahmen des Solidarpakt II" gewährten Bundesergänzungszuweisungen rechnen. Darüber hinaus wirft auch die demografische Entwicklung, die in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern durch einen starken Rückgang der Bevölkerung geprägt ist, fiskalische Probleme auf. Diesen kritischen Entwicklungen auf der Einnahmenseite stehen erhebliche Ausgabenerfordernisse gegenüber. Die Landespolitik steht vor der Aufgabe, eine fiskalische Struktur zu entwerfen, die diesem Spannungsfeld gerecht wird. Da die kommunale und die staatliche Ebene von den verschiedenen Einnahmen- und Ausgabenentwicklungen möglicherweise unterschiedlich getroffen werden, stellt sich insbesondere die Frage, ob die derzeitigen Finanzbeziehungen zwischen Land und Kommunen den zukünftigen Herausforderungen gewachsen sind. Das vorliegende Gutachten ist diesem Gegenstand gewidmet. Sein Ziel ist es, im Hinblick auf eine umfassende Neuordnung des kommunalen Finanzausgleichs in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern die bestehenden Regelungen und mögliche Alternativen aus finanzwissenschaftlicher Sicht zu bewerten. Dies geschieht im Rahmen der Auseinandersetzung mit drei zentralen Themengebieten: - Einnahmen und Ausgaben der kommunalen Gebietskörperschaften in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern. - Finanzkraftorientierter kommunaler Finanzausgleich: Der Gleichmäßigkeitsgrundsatz. - Aufgabenorientierter kommunaler Finanzausgleich: Das 2-Quellen-Modell
