Maybe a Trump Budget Outline in Mid-March

The Trump Administration has signaled its intent to release an outline of the FY ‘18 Federal budget request in mid-March.  While no date has been given for release of the detailed full budget request, this outline – often referred to as a “skinny budget” – should provide broad indications of how this Administration plans for the Federal government to operate over the next several months and into next calendar year – remember that FY ‘17 ends on September 30th of this year and FY ’18 starts on October 1st.  In light of this new information (which may or may not change over the next few weeks), it remains to be seen whether Congress will determine to allow the current continuing resolution to expire at the end of April or whether they will extend the CR through the end of the fiscal year.
