Prior to the legislative session, the Comptroller issues a Biennial Revenue Estimate (BRE) to tell lawmakers how much they can spend over the next two years. After the legislative session, the Comptroller issues a Certification Revenue Estimate (CRE) to reflect legislative activity and the most current economic information, as well as to take into account final revenue numbers for the recently ended fiscal year.
