NGFS+ Operating Spending

All Funds Operating Spending

Funds Subject to the Outlook (NGFO)

Legislative fiscal committee staffs base budget presentations on a synthetic “account” that rolls up the general fund–state (the state’s primary budget account) with the education legacy trust account and the opportunity pathways account, because they believe that it better reflects the entire budget situation. Previously called the near general fund-state plus opportunity pathways (NGFS+), it is now more simply called “funds subject to the outlook” or the near general fund-outlook (NGFO). (Under the four-year balanced budget requirement, a positive ending balance is required in the current biennium on an NGFO basis.)
