"J. Out of this appropriation, funds are provided to expand the technical support staff of the Joint Legislative Audit and Review Commission, in order to assist with legislative fiscal impact analysis when an impact statement is referred from the chairman of a standing committee of the House or Senate, and to conduct oversight of the expenditure forecasting process.  Pursuant to existing statutory authority, all agencies of the Commonwealth shall provide access to information necessary to accomplish these duties."

(This amendment provides $216,670 and three FTE positions the second year from the general fund to expand JLARC's technical capacity to conduct fiscal analyses and budget forecasts, as recommended by the Joint Commission on the Commonwealth's Planning and Budget Process. A companion amendment to Item 21 transfers these funds from the legislative contingency account.)
