Governor's Proposed Budget
Because the Revenue Estimating Committee (REC) has failed to recognize an amount of revenue that is available for creating a state budget, the Governor could not present an executive budget because there is no revenue number on which to base a budget. The Governor has submitted a proposed budget based on the budget estimates submitted by two of the economists who sit on the REC. These budget documents represent the Governor's proposal should the estimates that have been submitted be recognized. Our estimates are that the next meeting of the REC will be sometime in April before the Legislative Session begins on April 8.
