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!
