Budget of the U.S. Government

The budget of the U.S. Government is a term often used to indicate the submission to Congress of the President’s budget recommendations, as required by section 1105 of title 31 of the U.S. Code.  Since the U.S. Government and the budget process that is used to organize its finances is much broader than just the President’s budget submission under that section of law, the term may also encompass documents such as the concurrent resolution on the budget, as adopted by the Congress, which is the primary document associated with the Congressional budget process.
