Reports on Presidential Budget Requests

The President’s budget proposal begins the annual federal appropriations process. Though Congress ultimately writes and passes the twelve appropriations bills which make up the federal budget, the President’s budget proposal is an important political statement reflecting an administration’s priorities and governing philosophy.

Each year, NEMWI analyzes the President’s annual budget upon its release, determines the funding allotted to key regional programs, and compares them to the funding levels determined by appropriations bills of previous years.
