The OCR submitted the Fiscal Year 2021 (7/1/20-6/30/21) Budget Request on Nov. 1, 2019. To read the FY21 Budget Request, please click on the link above.
Joint Budget Committee (JBC) staff will review the budget request and brief the JBC in December. The OCR typically receives questions from the JBC, which the OCR will answer prior to the hearing where Chris Henderson will present the OCR’s budget to the JBC. The figure-setting process will likely occur in February or March 2020. After figure setting, there can be “comeback” requests where the JBC reconsiders previous proposals. The budget process will culminate with the Long Bill, which is typically introduced to the General Assembly in March or April. After the Long Bill passes through the House and the Senate, it goes to the Governor who has line item veto power.
