Finance Panel to Discuss Budget Strategies, State Pay in September

The Legislative Finance Committee is scheduled to meet Sept. 27-28 in Helena. The agenda includes updates on analysis of budget strategies for addressing volatility, analysis of state pay comparisons, continuing education on school funding, review of committee bill drafts, and an overview of the agency information technology strategic plans.

Earlier this summer, the committee met in conjunction with the State Administration and Veterans’ Affairs Interim Committee to review matters related to the state’s pension systems. The report of that meeting can be found in the SAVA article.

Also in June, the committee received the first Legislative Fiscal Division report on the outlook for the 2015 budget. The report can be found on the legislative website, www.leg.mt.gov. Select the Fiscal tab at the top of the page. Click on Publications on the subsequent page, where a link to the “Big Picture” report is found under “Our Favorite Publications.”
