  • Requires Governor's annual budget message to include description and fiscal analyses of recommendations to raise State revenue estimated at $1 million or more.
In Committee
Crossed Over
2016-2017 Regular Session
This bill requires the annual budget message presented by the Governor to the Legislature include recommendations by the Governor for any new or additional sources of revenue that may each raise $1,000,000 or more in State funds. Each recommendation shall be separately identified and the budget message shall include a full and detailed fiscal analysis of the new or additional sources of revenue, and an estimate of the funds anticipated to be available as a State resource or for appropriation during the fiscal year. This disclosure requirement shall also be included in any revisions the Governor makes to the budget message. This bill seeks to avoid any delay in disclosure, and less than full, detailed fiscal analyses by the Governor, of new or additional sources of revenue proposed. Any delay or less than full fiscal evaluation of the Governor's recommendations does not serve to further the exercise of the cooperative responsibilities shared by both the Executive and Legislative branches in enacting an annual balanced State budget.
