The 2018 legislative session ended March 11, 2018, with the State Legislature adopting the General Appropriations Act for Fiscal Year 2018-19 and other bills approving spending authority (collectively, the “2018-19 Budget”). The Governor signed the General Appropriations Act on March 16, 2018. After the Governor’s $64 million in line-item vetoes, the 2018-19 Budget totals $89.3 billion, which is $4.3 billion (5.1%) more than the Fiscal Year 2017-18 Budget of $85 billion. The General Fund budget totals approximately $32.8 billion and will be funded primarily from general revenue collections and $391.8 million in trust fund transfers.
