The Fiscal Leaders Committee began meeting in the early 1970s. It provided an unstructured venue for fiscal committee chairs and the presiding officer to meet with their counterparts in the opposite chamber for informal discussions while the State budget was under consideration by the General Assembly. Generally, the Senate President and House Speaker attend, the chairs and sometimes the vice-chairs of all the fiscal committees attend, and other attendees participate at the invitation of the Senate President and House Speaker.
