S.145 – Enacting a Biennial State Budget
S.145 would enact a biennial state budget to be considered and passed during odd-numbered years. However, the General Assembly would be permitted to enact a supplemental appropriations bill or a capital reserve fund appropriations bill every year. Adopting a biennial budget would be a positive reform, limiting spending opportunities and lobbying opportunities as well reducing the need for a lengthy session. However, the possibility for supplemental appropriations bills would likely negate any good this bill would otherwise do.
