Bill or Appropriation: What's the Difference?

Bills passed by the Legislature will change, delete or add to the laws of the State. The state budget is passed as a bill too, but the process is different. During the General Session, appropriations sub-committees put together the pieces of the overall budget, setting the levels and kinds of programs that are available through the various state agencies.
