Analysis by the Legislative Reference Bureau
Current law requires that the governor deliver a budget message to the
legislature and submit to the legislature, for introduction by the Joint Committee on
Finance, the executive budget bill or bills. This bill requires that the executive
budget bill or bills may not authorize expenditures in the succeeding fiscal biennium
that exceed revenues and other moneys that the state is expected to receive in the
succeeding fiscal biennium.
The people of the state of Wisconsin, represented in senate and assembly, do
enact as follows:
