Show me the money! 

CQ takes you inside the annual creation of our country’s federal budget.

The government’s budgeting process is by nature complex, exhaustive, and lengthy. We break it down into 5 easy steps, so you can stay on top of the progression.

We’ll show you:

  • What goes into the president’s budget request at the beginning of each fiscal year
  • How a “budget resolution” is formed and what it means
  • What must happen before the budget can be signed into law
  • And much more!
