Scope and Content Note

The series consists of copies of budget requests made by the commission for fiscal years 1973/74 through 1992/93. The records were created by the commission to justify annual requests for funds; the requests were submitted to the Division of the Budget for review, modification, and approval.

The requests include sections delineating: legal basis for funding; overall mission statement and commission goals and objectives; principal sources of funding and needs; summary of commission's work including reports and studies completed; summary of pending legislation and future projects; statistical breakdowns of positions (salaries, duties), maintenance, consulting and contractual services, supplies and materials, and estimated travel expenses; and tabulations made in summary of expenses (personal service and other categories).

In addition to the budget requests, the files for each fiscal year typically include: correspondence to/from budget examiners and other officials answering/posing questions on the request for appropriations; and some handwritten notes and calculations by commission members of specific elements of the budget request.
