Budget & Appropriations – President’s FY 2019 Budget Request Just Released

The Trump Administration just released its Fiscal Year (FY) 2019 Budget Request. This document serves to outline the Administration’s spending and revenue priorities for the next decade. Advocates are concerned that it will be similar to the President’s FY 2018 Budget, which called for historic cuts to both mandatory and discretionary programs that are critical for people with disabilities (see disability coalition statement on the 2018 Budget for reference). Though the President’s Budget is non-binding, it can set the stage for the Congressional Budgets which follow. The Arc will provide a summary of the President’s Budget in next week’s issue of the Capitol Insider.
