Budget Fever: President Releases His Budget for FY 2014

On April 10, President Obama released his Fiscal Year 2014 budget request, which outlines his plan for federal spending.

The budget calls for increased funding for the Agriculture and Food Research Initiative; supports efforts to serve healthy meals and snacks to schoolchildren; and preserves a strong Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP, or food stamps).

The president's budget supports continued implementation of the Affordable Care Act, including prevention initiatives, and bolsters food safety activities by increasing the Food and Drug Administration's total funding by $821 million above the 2012 enacted level.

More information is still to come on specifics of the president’s budget. It is meant to provide recommendations to the House and Senate budgets. However, the House and the Senate had already passed their respective budgets prior to the president's fiscal suggestions. The House and Senate budgets are drastically different, and it is still unclear if there will be a reconciliation process or a continuing resolution. While budget hearings take place on Capitol Hill this month, Congressional appropriators will begin working to determine funding levels for federal programs.
