Senate President Novelle E. Francis, Jr. has acknowledged receipt of the Fiscal Year 2020 Executive Budget, which was submitted to the Virgin Islands Legislature earlier today, in compliance with the statutory filing deadline of May 30th.
“I appreciate that Governor Bryan and his financial team met the deadline to submit the Executive Budget to the Senate,” Francis said. “Timely receipt of the budget allows the Legislature to proceed with its work of vetting this document in a comprehensive manner and making fiscally responsible decisions.
I look forward to hearing directly from government agencies during the upcoming budget cycle to best determine how their needs can be supportedin ways that serve the interests of the people of the Virgin Islands.”
