White House FY23 Budget Plan Finally Arrives on Capitol Hill

0

After several weeks of budget hearings on Capitol Hill, the witnesses will finally have a budget to discuss.

The White House is expected to release its proposals for fiscal year 2023 on Monday, about a month later than usual. Although the details were kept under wraps for weeks, lawmakers still continued their annual watchdog work, inviting a number of combatant commanders to testify about their needs and wants for the next year.

However, with the release of the official spending plan, lawmakers will be able to delve into more details. It begins Tuesday, with the testimony of the head of European Command and United States Transportation Command before the Senate Armed Services Committee.

Congress is expected to begin drafting its own defense and veterans spending plans in the coming weeks, with the goal of passing a full-year budget before November’s midterm elections. The new fiscal year begins Oct. 1, but lawmakers have rarely met that deadline to complete their budget work.
