DOD officials are telling congressional staff that the Obama administration is planning to issue its fiscal 2014 budget request April 8, reported CQ. As recently as last week, congressional committees had been expecting the budget on March 25. The new target, which falls nine weeks after the White House is statutorily required to submit its budget to Congress, coincides with the date lawmakers return from their Easter break. Neither the White House nor DOD has publicly said when the new spending plan will be ready. The administration’s delay in producing the budget means that the two chambers’ budget committees will not see the FY 2014 budget request before they mark up their budget resolutions next week.
