Recently, the National Priorities Project re-launched a major portion of our website, organizing our federal budget research content into eight issue areas:
This week, we bring you the key steps to creating a federal budget every year:
Step 1 - The President Submits a Budget Request
Step 2 - The House and Senate Pass Budget Resolutions
Step 3 - House and Senate Subcommittees “Markup” Appropriations Bills
Step 4 - The House and Senate Vote on Appropriations Bills and Reconcile Differences
Step 5 - The President Signs Each Appropriations Bill and the Budget Becomes Law
We'll continue to shine the spotlight on our other areas of work in the weeks to come. In the meantime, check out our updated website for factsheets, interactive rools, and local federal budget data.
