The following list shows the total dollar amount of appropriations for fiscal year 2015 voted for by each member of the Legislature during the 2014 legislative session. For fiscal year 2015, there were 97 appropriation bills signed into law. Combined, they totaled $6,694,176,800 ($6.7 billion) in appropriations. While some legislators (17 to be exact) voted in favor of every single appropriations bill, others voted no on some or even a majority of them.

There are several reasons why a given legislator might show a lower total than others. It could be that he or she was absent during one or more votes, and some single bills included significant appropriations; for example, the largest spending bill amounted to more than $2 billion. Another reason might be that a particular lawmaker found some aspect of the bill unacceptable and, therefore, voted against the entire bill. It could be that a legislator favored lower spending—or higher spending—than a given bill provided for, but had no alternatives to consider.

Why legislators voted for or against the appropriations bills they did is impossible to say. Each legislator has his or her own motives for the votes cast. The list simply provides information detailing exactly how much spending legislators voted for with no judgment as to the "why" of the vote.
