Bill 24

Appropriation Act, 2019

Introduction

 

Appropriation Acts are, essentially, the government establishing how it’ll spend its money and how much it’ll spend - they’re “appropriating” the funds to the various parts of government. There are three primary forms of an Appropriation Act - Interim Supply, Supplementary Supply, or just the standard Appropriation Act. Bill 24 is an “Appropriation” bill, meaning that this is the meat of the government’s budget for the 2019-2020 financial year.

 

Bill 24 is providing funds for the 2019-2020 financial year that ends on March 31, 2020 on top of the funding provided by Bill 6 in the Interim Supply. This is all of the money that will be provided for government operations for this financial year; however, the Supplementary Supply that will come out next year will shore up any overhanging expenses and could increase some of these expenses.

 

This list will list the total spending from both this and the Interim Supply legislation, the percentage of the total of that section of the costs, as well as a breakdown of how much came from both this act and the Interim Supply.
