What is the Department of Finance?

Just like bills in the Senate or Assembly, delegates will be responsible for putting forth new policies or amending existing ones, which impacts the state budget. As the budget touches upon practically everything in the government, these proposalsÍ subjects will be very wide-ranging. But each delegate can only bring new or amended policies which are of the subject of their assigned smaller committee, such as corrections, education, or health care. All proposals which pass through the committees will be read and debated in the delegateÍs respective large group. Delegates will need to defend their ideas and present persuasive arguments for them, including financial cost or saving figures. All proposals which are approved by their larger group will be added to their respective budget. But, only one groupÍs budget will win the challenge, and be chosen as the GovernorÍs budget.
