President’s Detailed FY 2015 Budget Request Released

On March 11, the Obama Administration released its detailed proposed funding amounts for FY 2015.  This follows the Administration’s release of the overall FY 2015 budget request a week earlier.  Visit The Arc’s website to see a comparison of the proposed amounts for disability-related programs for 2015 and the final amounts enacted since FY 2012.  As previously noted, while the President is required by law to release a budget each year, this particular budget is expected to have little legislative impact. The House and Senate already agreed to top-line spending levels in last year’s Bipartisan Budget Act.   Senator Patty Murray (D-WA), Chair of the Senate Budget Committee, had already announced that she will let that agreement stand instead of working toward a new Senate budget resolution this year.
