The Legislature Between Sessions

The Legislature has an ongoing staff agency known as the Legislative Counsel Bureau. This agency encompasses the Fiscal, Legal, and Research Divisions, which provide support for the Legislature. It also includes the Audit Division whose job consists of auditing the accounts of state agencies, and an Administrative Division, which provides accounting, security and various "housekeeping" functions.

The Legislative Counsel Bureau is supervised by the Legislative Commission, a body of 12 legislators, six from each house. The commission also takes actions on behalf of the legislative branch of government when the full Legislature is not in session. This body meets every few months between sessions to provide guidance to staff of the Legislative Counsel Bureau and to deal with other interim matters.

The Interim Finance Committee, composed of the members of the Senate Committee on Finance and the Assembly Committee on Ways and Means from the preceding session, makes fiscal decisions for the Legislature during the period between regular sessions. The Interim Finance Committee endeavors to maintain an adequate fund balance to meet unforeseen financial emergencies.
