(The Hill) President Obama will deliver his fiscal 2015 budget a month late.
The budget, officially due on the first Monday in February, will come out on March 4, the White House said Thursday.
An official said work on the proposal was delayed by the two-year budget deal that Congress passed in December and the omnibus spending bill that was passed this month.
“The President’s 2015 Budget will be released on March 4. Now that Congress has finished its work on this year’s appropriations, the Administration is able to finalize next year’s Budget. We are moving to complete the Budget as quickly as possible to help Congress return to regular order in the annual budget process,” budget office spokesman Steve Posner said in a statement.
