HB1177 implements periodic review of state spending programs, including performance statements, joint legislative audit and review by committee, and fiscal recommendations for the continuation of the programs.
Every new statutory state spending program, except as otherwise provided, will include an expiration date no more than ten years from the effective date of the spending program. Every new statutory state spending program must now include a state spending performance statement. The joint legislative audit and review committee must now review new statutory state spending programs according to a schedule developed by the committee. The committee must also provide a recommendation to the fiscal committees of the legislature as to whether the new statutory state spending program should be continued, modified, or terminated.
