Massachusetts Budget Process

From its inception as the Governor’s annual appropriation recommendations for Massachusetts and through amendments adopted in both the House of Representatives and the Senate, the annual budget goes through many permutations before finally becoming law.

5. Senate Budget

Senate Budget was finalized on 6/2/2016.

The full Senate considers amendments to the Senate Ways and Means recommendations and debates their inclusion in the bill. The Senate then approves a final, amended version of the bill.
