After the Minister of Finance has presented the Budget and made his opening address, the House of Representatives create the Standing Finance Committee to study the Budget and make recommendations. When the Debate closes, the House passes an Appropriation Act, which gives the Government the authority to operate the Budget. After the House of Representatives has passed the Appropriation Act, the Act goes to the Senate for approval (JIS, 2018).
