Description

This podcast continues the conversation about the federal budget process but this time focuses on Congresses’ role. It follows the path of the budget from the president’s office through Congressional leadership and the budget committee (that agrees to the total amount) and appropriations committee (that figures out who gets what) and how the budget is broken up into several appropriations bills to get it passed.
