Budget Index Report

How to Use This Guide to the 2003-05 Governor's Executive Budget Bill
2003 Senate Bill 44

The budget bill (Senate Bill 44) is composed of hundreds of individual drafts (component drafts), each dealing with a particular topic or program. The Budget Index Report contains a subject index term and a topic line for each component. You can search the report for a word or phrase as you would any other Folio infobase.

Your search will find the word or phrase in the subject, topic heading, or in the component draft. If you find the word or phrase for which you searched in the Budget Index Report, the first instance will be a link to the LRB number of the component draft. Other instances will be links to both the component draft and to the sections in the SB-44 itself.

Remember to search for plurals, i.e. a search for railroad will not find railroads unless you use wild card characters. Also, abbreviations are used in the Budget Index Report (i.e. MA and med. assist.).
