Supplementals

Supplementals are appropriation adjustments used to increase or decrease the current-year funding authorization for a line-item appropriation, or to create a new line-item appropriation. Supplemental bills are listed on the Appropriation Bill Status Sheet and are also found in the Year-End Appropriations report.

Transfers

Transfers are a statutory mechanism that allows the Legislature to move existing appropriation authorization within a specific department. There are two types of transfers: Administrative and Legislative (which include Contingency Fund transfers).

Executive Orders

There are three types of Executive Orders that may be issued by the Governor: 1) directives that establish advisory boards or commissions, or change names or practices within State agencies, and are effective upon filing by the Governor (no legislative action required); 2) orders that reorganize State government and are effective 60 days after issuance (or later) if not disapproved by the Legislature; and 3) orders that reduce State government spending and are effective only if approved by both the House and Senate Appropriations Committees within 10 days of issuance.
