FY 2015 Obama Administration Budget Recommendations to Congress were released on March 4, 2014 - The proposed $3.9 trillion budget for FY 2015, which covers the time period of October 2014 through September 2015, "... adheres to the 2015 spending levels agreed to in the Bipartisan Budget Act and shows the choices the President would make at those levels ... [It includes] a total of $2.7 billion for agricultural research and extension activities ... [as well as] a fully-paid for $56 billion Opportunity, Growth, and Security Initiative showing where additional investments should be made in critical areas ..." - The Administration claims that the budget would bring "... deficits down as a share of the economy to 1.6 percent by 2024 ..." - It is not practical for FIEN to summarize and report all the details of the HHS/CDC/CVM/FDA, USDA/ARS/CNPP/FNS/FSIS/NIFA, EPA, OSHA and other Agency budget recommendations; however, the index record for this message will be updated with web links to important documents as they become available - For the latest web links go to
