What is a Capital Budget?

"Capital budget". "Bonding bill". What do those phrases mean and how do they fit into the overall state budget process?

In January of the first year of a biennial legislative session, the governor is required to submit a budget message and a proposed budget to the legislature (Minnesota Statutes 16A.11).  Much of the work in the first year of a session revolves around creating an "operating budget" that will fund state government for the next two fiscal years. But that statute also requires the governor to submit a "capital" budget in January of the second year of the biennial session. So if the state already has a budget, what exactly is a capital budget?

Minnesota's capital budget finances the acquisition, construction, and maintenance of public lands, state buildings, and infrastructure such as highways. Minnesota’s Constitution (Article 11, section 5) details the specific types of projects that may be considered. The projects can be financed with direct appropriations or through borrowing mechanisms such as state bonds. A recent House Research Information Brief, Capital Investment and State Bonding, sheds light on this somewhat complex issue.

Since 2016 is the second year of the legislative biennium, the creation of a capital budget will be the primary focus of the upcoming session. As required, Governor Dayton recently submitted his proposed capital budget to the legislature. In the coming months, legislators will examine the many requests and select which projects to finance and decide how much money will be spent. The selected projects will be added to a legislative bill known as a "bonding bill". That bill must pass both the House and Senate with at least a three-fifths majority vote in each body before it can be sent to the governor for approval or veto.

With the capital budget process underway, we have been receiving questions about past bonding bills. What projects were selected? How much money did they receive? What was the total dollar amount of bonding bills in past years? "About Capital Projects", part of Minnesota Management & Budget's website, provides a wealth of information about current and historical capital budgets.

The Legislative Library has many original budget documents as well as information and data about the state's current and historical budgets. Our State Budget guide highlights some of those materials.
