Rapid Response: Budget Analysis

February 13, 2018 | 2:00 PM – 3:00 PM

President Trump will send his fiscal 2019 budget request to Capitol Hill on Monday February 12. The new request will land in the middle of prolonged, politicized (it is an election year after all) negotiations to finish appropriations for fiscal 2018 — the government is operating on stop-gap funding until there’s a deal.

With far reaching consequences across industries and agencies, Bloomberg Government experts will break down the president’s budget request the following day, February 13, with charts and figures for the major agencies, laying out the starting point for the year’s debate about government spending.
