President's Budget

On Monday, Feb. 14, 2011, the president released his FY 2012 budget. As authorized in the Budget and Accounting Act of 1921, the president by law is required to submit a budget to Congress. While the budget is only a request and does not offer any binding language, it nonetheless is regarded as a powerful directive on national policy from the administrative branch. The FY 2012 budget as proposed by the president would have outlays of $3.7 trillion and revenue expectations of $2.6 trillion. NCSL has provided information and summaries below on budget requests with particular relevance to states.
