Revenue and Fiscal Affairs supports the General Assembly in the development of an appropriation bill by reviewing state agency budget plans and providing analysis and reports to the Ways and Means and Senate Finance Committees. The agency assists legislators, legislative staff, the Governor’s Office, constitutional officers, and state agencies with research regarding budget issues. We also prepare a variety of reports that support the General Assembly’s budgetary decision-making including analytical and historical budget reports, summaries, and other statistical information. Throughout the fiscal year, the agency consults with and advises state agencies on budget priorities, cost-effectiveness, and statewide considerations regarding agency plans and funding needs.
The Historical Analyses report provides an overview of historical data about the state's appropriations, expenditures, and revenues.
These reports provide detailed information on State revenues, both historical and forecasted, as well as topical economic analyses.
