2021 Petition to the Joint Budget Committee (JBC) staff

Tell the Legislature: Now would be the worst time to cut school funding.

The Role of the Joint Budget Committee:

In most states, the executive branch initiates the main appropriation bill for the ongoing operations of state government. Colorado, however, has a strong legislative budget process. The General Assembly's permanent fiscal and budget review agency, the Joint Budget Committee (JBC), sponsors the annual appropriations bill (called the "Long Bill") for the operations of state government.

In preparing the budget for the state each year, the General Assembly receives recommendations from the JBC. The JBC is charged with studying the management, operations, programs, and fiscal needs of the agencies and institutions of Colorado state government. Throughout the year, the JBC holds a number of meetings and considers a range of documents to help prepare the budget recommendations for the General Assembly.
