Introduced Appropriation Bills
The Governor proposes a budget which is sent to the House for consideration. The chair of the Budget Committee files a set of appropriations bills which make up the budget.
The Appropriations Committees consider and amend the proposed appropriations bills.
The Appropriations Committees report their recommendations to the Budget Committee, which considers and amends the proposed appropriations bills.
The Budget Committee reports its recommendations to the House Floor. The House Perfects the appropriations bills through a process of amending.
Any amendments are compiled to create the Perfected version of each appropriations bill. The bills are then Third Read.
Bills Third Read and Passed in the House are sent to the Senate for consideration and further amendment. If the Senate amends a bill, it must be returned to the House for consideration and/or Joint Committee amendmending process.
Once each bill is Truly Agreed to and Finally Passed by the House and Senate, it is sent to the Governor. The Governor may veto a bill in total, or veto line-items, or allow the bill to pass. Vetoes may be overruled by the House and Senate. Once the final version is passed, it is sent to the Secretary of State.
