Office of the Legislative Fiscal Analyst

Statement of Mission, Purpose, Goals and Values

We affect good government through objective, accurate, relevant budget advice and documentation.

We help legislators establish a balanced budget by forecasting revenue, staffing appropriations subcommittees and drafting appropriations bills. We estimate the cost and/or savings for all proposed legislation. We regularly monitor and report on program implementation and management. We support decision making by printing and disseminating bills, fiscal notes, and other materials. We document and preserve legislative action.

We value honesty, integrity, accountability, professionalism, equality, open mindedness, mutual respect, independent thought, dialogue, intellectual enrichment, and personal and professional relationships.
