Joint Budget Committee (JBC) Taking Public Testimony

Generally speaking, the only opportunity for public comment on the budget is when the ‘Long Bill’ is heard in the Senate or House appropriations committees in March, after the budget has been largely crafted. The budget hearing will begin at 1:30 p.m. on the third floor of the Legislative Services Building, south across East 14th Avenue from the Capitol.
