The Commission on State Finance was formed in 1980 as a result of Senate Bill 165 (Chapter 1162 of Statutes 1979). An agency
of State government, the Commission on State Finance began operating on January 1, 1980, with the objective of providing the
Legislature and the Governor with quarterly forecasts of state revenues, current year expenditures and deficit surpluses,
monthly reports on the economy and state tax collections, and annual long term forecasts on the same subjects. The Commission
was composed of seven members: the State Treasurer, State Controller, Director of Finance, Speaker of the Assembly, President
Pro Tempore of the Senate, Assembly Minority Leader and Senate Minority Leader. To fulfill its duties the Commission was empowered
to examine state agency records, hold hearings, conduct studies, and compile reports.
