Notes on Budget Process

By John Forester | June 27, 2019

From The Wheeler Report . . .

The budget has passed both houses of the legislature and is ready to be enrolled.  It is expected that enrollment will be done quickly with the possibility of the leadership of both houses signing the bill cover on Friday.  It is expected that Speaker Vos will direct the Assembly Chief Clerks office to deliver the budget to the Governor per Assembly Rule 23(4).  If the budget is delivered to the Governor and the Legislature does not wait for the bill to be called for by the Governor, it will be the first time that has occurred.  The Speaker’s office has directed the Chief Clerk to deliver bills to the Governor before, but never the budget. If delivered to the Governor on Friday, the 6 day clock will begin on Saturday, meaning the Governor would have until Friday, July 5 to act.
