German Bundestag

The budget committee of the Bundestag in the 19th legislative period is one of the largest permanent Bundestag committees with 44 members . The committee was constituted on January 31, 2018. According to parliamentary custom, the budget committee is always chaired by a member of the largest opposition faction.

The committee chairman in the 19th legislative period is the AfD MP Peter Boehringer . The main task of this committee is to advise on the Federal Budget Act. For this purpose, reporters are used who deal with the budget plans of each individual ministry, the individual plans. Their results serve as the basis for further committee deliberations. The budget committee issues a separate recommendation for each individual plan.

The budget committee begins working on the federal budget after transferring the budget proposed by the federal government, deliberation with general debate and final debate in the first reading by the plenary session of the Bundestag. First of all, all individual plans are examined in rapporteur meetings by the ministry, representatives of the Federal Ministry of Finance and the Court of Auditors and changed if necessary. Then the committee deliberates. At the end of the deliberations, all the individual plans are fully discussed in a large adjustment meeting and combined to form the final draft budget for Parliament.
