    Policy Update -- Week of February 14

    The Big Picture: Yesterday was Budget Day, the day when the President releases the Administration's proposed budget for the next fiscal year (2013, beginning on October 1, 2012). This is the start of the budget process, and both chambers and parties will spend a lot of time considering what is proposed or left out of the President's proposal. However, the document is just a proposal from the Executive Branch and can be considered or completely disregarded by the Legislative Branch as it considers a budget and later appropriations bills. Find links to all budget documents at the Office of Management and Budget, the White House's budget arm.

    For summary documents from USDA along with some helpful graphs, you may want to check out the USDA budget summary.

    This week also kicks off the farm bill hearings on the Senate side of the Hill. Meanwhile, over 80 groups signed a letter urging full consideration of a comprehensive farm bill this year before the expiration date of September 30, 2012. That is a heavy lift since we are just seven and half months away from that date.

    Happening This Week:

    Farm Bill hearing on the Senate side: "Energy and Economic Growth" on February 15 at 9:30 a.m.

    If you really want to dive in the deep end of the budget pool, check out the Appendix document that is put out by the Office of Management and Budget. This is the 1,478 page document where many of the details surrounding the budget are located. You can also just pull up the budget documents by individual agency.
