President's 2013 Department of Justice Budget Proposal Highlights

The president’s FY 2013 budget unveiled on Feb. 13, 2012, weighs in at $3.8 trillion, offers a $3 trillion deficit reduction outline comprised of spending reductions and revenue enhancements, and prioritizes funding for state-federal education and transportation programs. This unveiling commences the FY 2013 federal budget process. By the end of March, House Republicans intend to move a FY 2013 budget resolution likely to mirror one they passed last year. The Senate Democratic leader recently announced that there will not be a floor vote on a FY 2013 budget resolution because spending targets enacted in last year’s Budget Control Act will guide appropriations decisions.
