Legislative Efforts

Budget Bill Subject

When the budget bill is introduced in the legislature, the Legislative Fiscal Bureau assigns subject areas to the bill on which the lobbying principals report interests. Lobbying principals do not report an interest in the budget bill itself.

Budget Bill Subjects for the 2021-2022 Legislative Session were published on February 17, 2021. The full list can be viewed here.
