Delaware Joint Finance Committee begins budget writing process

The General Assembly’s Joint Finance Committee has begun two weeks of sessions that will lead to a vote on the Fiscal Year 2013 budget.

The JFC, which held six weeks of hearings on Governor Markell’s budget proposal earlier this year, is meeting today, Thursday and three days next week.  Sessions usually get underway at about 10 a.m. at the JFC meeting room at Legislative Hall in Dover.  Delaware is required by its constitution to have a balanced budget by the start of the new fiscal year July 1st.
