The Office of Management and Budget formulates an annual budget for the coming year for the administration. That proposed budget is then forwarded to members of the Legislature for review. The budget is then reviewed by members of the Legislature. They, in turn, either accept the administration’s budget as is, or they make recommendations for changes to the budget. Those changes, as well as the administration’s proposed budget are aired during a public hearing. At that time, members of the public, as well as department heads and managers, are welcome to discuss the proposed budget.
