Fiscal Highlights - May 2016
Budget of the State of Utah - 2016 General Session -
Ben Leishman ( PDF)|
Each year, the Fiscal Analyst's office produces an appropriations report. This year's report is a comprehensive account of actions made by the Legislature during the 2016 General Session, the 2015 1st Special Session, and the 2016 2nd Special Session. The report fulfills a statutory requirement "to prepare after each session of the Legislature, a summary showing the effect of the final legislative program on the financial condition of the state" (UCA 36-12-13(2(j)).
The report begins with a summary of the entire state budget. Information contained in the summary includes several graphics detailing state revenues, expenditures, and the allocation of new discretionary funds available during the 2016 General Session. The summary also highlights employee compensation adjustments, bills that affect revenue, reserve funds, structural balance, and debt. Finally, the summary concludes with several budget tables that provide detail on the state budget.
Following the Statewide Summary, additional sections of the report detail budget changes for each section of the budget, organized by appropriations subcommittee. Each section begins with a written summary highlighting the agencies and line-items covered in the section and any budget changes made by the Legislature. Each of these sections concludes with a series of tables that detail the budget by subcommittee, agency, and line-item.
Each subcommittee section includes an "A3" and "B2" table that provide appropriation adjustment details for each budget year -- A3 details FY 2017 and B2 details FY 2016. The tables answer the common question, "Where was my item funded?" The tables list the item name, the agency that received the appropriation, the line-item where the funds were appropriated, the bill and item number for the appropriation, the revenue source, and finally, the amount appropriated.
