Capital Outlay Appropriation

The FPC Section prepares the capital outlay bill, omnibus bond bill, and concurrent resolution. These are presented to the legislature on the eighth day of the legislative session.

During the legislative session, committee hearings are conducted and the capital outlay bill moves through the legislature to enactment. With the exceptions explained above, the capital outlay act includes only those projects that have been proposed, reviewed, and evaluated in accordance with constitutional and statutory provisions and excludes any project deemed not feasible after evaluation. During the legislative process, the FPC Section monitors changes to the capital outlay bill, omnibus bond bill, and concurrent resolution.

After enactment of the capital outlay act, the FPC Section prepares the governor's veto messages (if any). After the governor's signature of the act, capital outlay appropriation letters are sent to notify agencies of capital outlay appropriations and of procedures required to initiate funded projects.
