Wisconsin State Budget Process
All state agencies and constitutional offices, including the Office of the State Treasurer, develop a budget request every two years. The Governor receives those requests and introduces a budget proposal known as the Executive Budget that includes the budgets of each agency. The Legislature reviews, changes, and approves spending allocations through the budget bill. The budget bill passed by the Legislature then heads to the Governor’s desk to be reviewed and signed. Once the budget is passed, the State Treasurer’s Office works to provide transparency and accountability in the way state money is spent.
