The tool used by both the Governor and the Legislature to determine State General Fund revenue is the “consensus revenue estimate” prepared by the Consensus Revenue Estimating Group. This group is composed of representatives of the Division of the Budget, Department of Revenue, Legislative Research Department, and one consulting economist each from the University of Kansas, Kansas State University, and Wichita State University. This group meets each spring and fall. Before December 4th, the group makes its initial estimate for the budget year and revises the estimate for the current year. By April 20th, the fall estimate is reviewed, along with any additional data. A revised estimate is published, which the Legislature may use in adjusting expenditures, if necessary.  After each regular Session, and any Special Session if applicable, and pursuant to KSA 75-6701, the Legislative Research Department and Division of the Budget adjust the most recent estimates of State General Fund (SGF) receipts for current and out budget years. These adjustments reflect the fiscal impact of legislation involving receipts to the SGF enacted subsequent to the April Consensus Revenue Estimate.
