Why is the state so late to refund taxes

For the third year in a row, the state is late on giving back refunds. I filed my taxes in February, and got my federal refund a week later. I still haven’t gotten my state refund. Two years ago I didn’t get my state refund until August. Last year it was May. Returns should be sent ASAP. Something should be done so that this delay doesn’t happen again.
