Budget of the United States Government

Every year in February the President of the United States sends to Congress a budget request for the fiscal year that begins in ten months on October 1.

This Budget of the United States Government starts the annual “budget process” that ends when Congress passes and the president signs the annual appropriations bills or continuing resolutions to fund the federal government for another fiscal year.
