The Executive Appropriations Committee (EAC) serves as the "hub" committee for subcommittees of the Joint Appropriations Committee. Under Joint Rule 3-2-402, the EAC coordinates the activities of the eight appropriations subcommittees and formulates a state-wide budget for consideration of the Joint Appropriations Committee.
In addition to its role as a budget clearinghouse, the EAC specifically hears and considers the budget requests of the Capitol Preservation Board, Legislature, Utah National Guard, and Department of Veterans' Affairs.
The EAC also adopts revenue estimates and spending limit amounts, makes budget allocations to subcommittees, and reviews federal grants.
