With the exception of most Federal funds, funds of the State of Arizona are generally subject to legislative appropriation. Included in the appropriated funds are: General, Highway, Licensing Boards’ funds (such as Board of Accountancy, Barbers Examiners, etc.), Game and Fish Fund, etc. Monies in an appropriated fund cannot be spent without legislative authority. If there are any questions as to whether or not a fund is appropriated, either contact the ADOA-GAO or the OSPB. You may also refer to the Appropriations Report published by the Joint Legislative Budget Committee Staff for guidance.
