President’s Budget

Fiscal Year 2018

President’s Budget Submission

Under section 1105 of title 31 the U.S. Code, the President is legally required by “the first Monday in January but not later than the first Monday in February of each year” to submit a budget for the upcoming fiscal year to Congress. Section 1106 of the Code sets forth a further legal requirement for the President to submit an update to the budget, which must occur before July 16 of each year. This document is commonly known as the “Mid-Session Review”.

While for fiscal year 2018, the President did not comply with the statutory date, with the full budget not arriving until May 23, 2017, this is not unusual insofar as newly elected Presidents do not have the time to prepare a full budget in time.
