The Wisconsin Legislative Fiscal Bureau is a nonpartisan service agency of the Wisconsin Legislature. The Bureau provides fiscal and program information and analyses to the Wisconsin Legislature, its committees, and to individual legislators.


The Bureau also serves as staff to the Joint Committee on Finance -- a 16-member Committee, which reviews and deliberates on legislation affecting state revenues and appropriations. The primary focus of the Committee's work, and thus, that of the Bureau, in each legislative session is the state's biennial budget.
