White House set to release next year’s budget plans on Monday

With the fiscal 2024 budget for the federal government still unsettled, the White House will unveil plans for its fiscal 2025 spending plans on Monday, including proposed funding levels for the Departments of Defense and Veterans Affairs.

The budget proposals — which outline the president’s priorities for next fiscal year — are expected to undergo significant revisions in coming months as lawmakers add and adjust to the spending outline.

That work usually begins in February, but delays in finalizing the fiscal year 2024 budget have pushed back that timeline. Congress is expected by the end of this month to finalize plans for Defense Department spending and other agencies which have been operating without a full-year fiscal plan since Oct. 1.

On Tuesday, Office of Management and Budget Director Shalanda Young is scheduled to testify before the Senate Budget Committee about the president’s budget plan.
