executive action on any motion relating to the biennial budget bill unless the motion
has been distributed to all members of JCF at least 48 hours before JCF considers
or takes executive action on the motion. The motion must also be posted on the
Legislative Fiscal Bureau Internet site at least 48 hours before JCF considers or
takes executive action on the motion.

that contains minor substantive differences from a motion that has met the bill's
requirements.
