The Joint Legislative Committee on the Budget (JLCB) is composed of the members of the House Committee on Appropriations, the Senate Finance Committee, and the Chairmen of the House Committee on Ways and Means and the Senate Revenue and Fiscal Affairs Committee.

The committee may hold public hearings each year to review agency budget requests and the recommended executive budget and report its findings and recommendations two weeks prior to each regular legislative session.  During the interim, the committee is authorized to approve or disapprove transfers of funds and to approve requests for use of interest earnings and for change orders for capital constructions projects.  The committee is often extended broad authority to interpret and oversee implementation of legislative intent in regard to fiscal and budgetary matters.
