Welcome to the House Democratic Appropriations Committee!

Our office provides careful analyses of state budget related legislation and issues presented here as budget briefings, fast facts, primers, spreadsheets and other material to help you understand how the state budget impacts the lives of all Pennsylvanians. Check back here for new materials from the time the governor presents an executive budget proposal to the General Assembly in early February through enactment of a new state spending plan in June and throughout the summer and fall as more detailed analyses are completed and posted. For upcoming meetings, recent committee votes, legislation currently in the committeee and committee transcripts, please visit the General Assembly's website.
