Key Takeaways

  • Every two years, the governor releases budget recommendations and the General Assembly takes the first half of the year to consider the proposal and develop its own versions of a budget for the state.
  • There are usually differences between the House- passed and the Senate-passed versions of the budget, and a conference committee is required to reconcile these differences.
  • Any provision in any bill that includes appropriations can be line-item vetoed by the governor.
