Fiscal 2013 Budget Request Delayed

The Office of Management and Budget (OMB) announced earlier this week that the Administration’s FY 2013 budget request will be delayed for release until February 13th. Under current law, the release date is to be the first Monday in February. However, last year’s budget (and others in the past) did not meet that particular criterion. In a continuing effort to reduce printing costs, the budget will be available online but printed copies will only be available (at cost) through the Government Printing Office. As always, ASDWA will continue to track and inform states about the budget request for EPA and other funding elements that affect state drinking water programs.
