Legislative Oversight of Federal Funds: Contingency Planning

webinar graphic

NCSL Webinars allow attendees to participate in meetings taking place around the world from the comfort of their desk. They are collaborative, interactive and easy to use.

Most webinars will be recorded for those who are unable to attend the live meeting.

In their constitutional role as controllers of the state purse strings, state legislatures must ensure that federal funds are spent according to the law. Explore the general and legal roles of state legislatures in the federal grant-in-aid system, and hear from experts on improving oversight of federal funds.

PowerPoint Presentation
Utah Contingency Plan


  • Jonathan Ball, director, Office of the Legislative Fiscal Analyst, Utah
  • Eric Weeks, deputy general counsel, Legislative Research and General Counsel, Utah

This program was designed to qualify for continuing legal education (CLE) credits in most states that have mandatory CLE. NCSL did not pre-apply for CLE. Those who want to view the presentation and submit it for CLE credit in their state may self-apply using a Uniform Application for CLE. However, final acceptance of CLE hours is the prerogative of your state’s CLE authority.
