Dear Friends,

As the cherry blossoms open around the Tidal Basin, another spring ritual is getting underway in Washington: the annual budget and appropriations cycle. President Biden submitted his Proposed Budget for FY24 on March 9, kicking off another round of budget hearings on the Hill, which will be followed by months of work by the appropriations committees to craft FY24 funding bills.

In this month’s newsletter, Senior Fellow Matt Glassman dives into a fascinating discussion of the procedural outlook for consideration of these bills, the political pressures surrounding them, and what both might portend for the final outcome of the process.

Be sure to keep up with our latest podcast episodes, and let us know if there’s a topic you’d like to hear us to cover! We’re enjoying seeing lots of you in person again and are excited about our upcoming schedule of classes, both on the Hill and online. As always, we’re happy to come to you too – just let me know if we can tailor a program for your office.

Have a wonderful spring,


Kristin Nicholson is the Director of the Government Affairs Institute
