mental health program; and (4) a bill or bills covering recommendations, if any, in the budget for new or additional
revenue. The budget for the succeeding fiscal year and each of the bills shall become public information on December 15
at which time the governor shall submit copies to the legislature and make copies available to the public. The bills,
identical in content to the copies released on December 15, shall be delivered to the rules committee of each house
before the fourth legislative day of the next regular session for introduction.
