46 states begin their fiscal year on July 1 (New York begins its fiscal year on April 1, Texas on September 1, and Alabama and Michigan on October 1). Over the coming months, 48 states will enact a new budget for fiscal 2022. Governors in Virginia and Wyoming, which both enacted two-year budgets for fiscal 2021 and fiscal 2022 in calendar year 2020, have proposed budget adjustments to their biennial budgets. Kentucky, which would have normally passed a two-year budget in calendar year 2020, passed a one-year budget only for fiscal 2021 due to revenue uncertainty created by COVID-19, and will be considering a new budget for fiscal 2021-2022 this year. Of the 48 states considering a new budget for fiscal 2022, 17 states will enact a biennial budget for both fiscal 2022 and fiscal 2023.
As of January 21, governors in 28 states have proposed a new or revised budget for fiscal 2022.
