ADMINISTRATION FY19 BUDGET PROPOSAL DELAYED ONE WEEK DUE TO SHUTDOWN - January 25, 2018
Trump to Issue 2019 Budget and Workforce Cutting Plans on Feb. 12
By Eric Katz, Government Executive
President Trump will unveil his fiscal 2019 budget request on Feb. 12, one week after the White House is technically required to send the blueprint to Congress and just days after current appropriations are set to expire.
The cause for the delay, according to the Office of Management and Budget, was the recent three-day government shutdown. While presidents are scheduled to release their budgets on the first Monday of every February, they often wait longer.
