The Assembly Appropriations Committee records consist of 63 cubic feet of textual records and 140 audiotapes. The record group
is organized into two series: bill files and hearing files. Bill files, consisting of 63 cubic feet, were created between
the years 1995-2006. Hearing files, created between 1995-1997, exist in audiotape format.
The Appropriations Committee is the most recent Assembly committee to oversee fiscal bills, including bonds and alternative
public financing. The first committee that had fiscal bills under its purview was the Assembly Ways and Means Committee, created
by an Assembly Resolution on December 18, 1849. Beginning in 1995, the responsibility of this committee was passed on to the
newly created Assembly Appropriations Committee. The Assembly Appropriations Committee was formed by HR10, which passed on
January 24, 1995. Through December 2007, this committee has been responsible for approving appropriations of the legislature.
