Dec: Understanding the Budget of the United States (North Carolina Library Association)

Thursday, Dec. 11 (10-11 am Mountain)
Help! I’m an Accidental Government Information Librarian presents...

What is the difference between mandatory and discretionary spending? What is the role of entities such as the Office of Management and Budget and Congressional Budget Office? How much did the federal government spend on a particular program in a given year? Helping library patrons with questions such as these about the federal budget and government spending can be a challenge without a solid understanding of the federal budget and appropriations process. This webinar will describe how the federal budget and appropriations process works and provide information on key resources for researching this complex topic.
