Obama budget proposal expected Monday

The debate over federal spending is likely to get louder next week following Monday’s scheduled release of the Obama administration’s budget proposal.

The debate over federal spending is likely to get louder next week following Monday’s scheduled release of the Obama administration’s budget proposal. NAWG and other agricultural organizations will be closely watching the proposal and reactions to it for indications of how the FY2013 budget cycle could play out, specifically with regards to agriculture research and other programs that require spending allocations to be passed each year.

For his part, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) has already indicated he does not intend to bring a FY2013 budget resolution to the floor of that chamber. The chairman of the Senate Appropriations Committee has also announced the existing moratorium on earmarks, or congressionally-directed spending, will continue in FY2013.
