Appropriations Committee Bill Summaries

Since the Appropriations Committee does not advance budget bills individually, we have provided summaries of bills incorporated into the Committee’s budget proposal. Though these summaries are not official committee statements, they are intended to read similarly. You will find information on testifiers, statements of intent, the funding requested and the action the committee took regarding the bill.
