About Us

The Appropriations Committee, one of 14 standing Committees of Virginia's House of Delegates, has jurisdiction over state budget matters. We hope you will find the Committee's web site useful and choose to visit it any time you have a question about the Committee, its subcommittees, or the state budget.  

The Appropriations Committee usually meets monthly during the interim and every other day of the Session upon adjournment of the full House to discuss budget matters. In addition, the Committee has eight standing Subcommittees which meet once or twice a week during the Session.  Some of the Committees' major responsibilities include:

  • Examine revenue and expenditure assumptions in the Governor's introduced budget
  • Set funding priorities for the Commonwealth Consider requests by House members to amend (change) the introduced budget
  • Make recommendations for budgetary changes based on priorities of the Committee  

Virginia has a biennial budget which is adopted by the General Assembly in the even-numbered years and amended by the Assembly in the odd-numbered years.  Please click on the following links for more information about the Executive Budget Process or the Legislative Budget Process.  Also visit the Department of Planning and Budget's frequently asked questions  webpage for an overview of Virginia's budget.
