The County Assembly is entitled to a maximum of 10 percent of the entire County budget according to ceilings issued by the Commission on Revenue Allocation.

The proposal for the County assembly budet is prepared by the County Assembly Service Board (CASB), chaired by the Speaker. Its tasks are named in the County Governments Act, Sec. 12

The CASB also prepares the County executive budget, which is submitted to the County Assembly for approval alongside the County Assembly Budget. For media this procedure means that the correct interview partners for the politicians’ stance  on both budgets are the members of the CASB, namely the speaker.
