Budget Deviations In The Galician Regional Government
The budget deviations of the Spanish regional governments have been the focus of attention more than once, whether due to the extensive volume that their official figures have reached in the past, or to the persistent presence of hidden deviations, especially in the health sector. This article analyzes the specific case of the Galician regional government, distinguishing between the deviation in appropriations and the deviation in expenditures (from opening appropriations). With regard to the former, this paper evidences the lag of the regional legal framework in relation to the national one. Moreover, it draws the basic evolution of this deviation’s global figures as well as the use of the different varieties of rebudgeting. With regard to the deviation in expenditures, this work reveals several of its behavior keys, looking into the differences resulting from adjusting the official figures for the so called “hidden expenditures”. Finally, conclusions are enunciated and possible reforms are suggested for the upcoming years.
