Obama Budget to Be Submitted Even Later


The Obama Administration is on track to beat former President Bill Clinton for second-longest delay in submitting a presidential budget on time.

First place for the latest budget in history? That also goes to President Obama. In 2009, he did not submit a budget until 98 days after the statutory deadline.

Though the White House has not yet confirmed them, news reports are suggesting that April 8 is likely the date that Americans will finally see a budget from Obama.

By law, the President’s budget must be submitted on the first Monday in February—February 4 this year—a date the Obama Administration sailed past. Previously, Congress anticipated receiving the budget on March 25. Now, the early April date means the delay will pass the two-month mark.
