The ten-member Legislative Budget Board (LBB) was created by statute in 1949. The primary purpose of the Board is the development of recommended legislative appropriations for all agencies of state government. The Board provides the Texas Legislature with the recommended state budget, prepared by the LBB staff, at the beginning of each legislative session, which occurs in early January of odd-numbered years. The Board’s authority is broad and its influence on state government spending is significant. The composition of the Legislative Budget Board is specified by statute.
