Budget Brief 17-06
March 31, 2017

When the president released his budget blueprint for fiscal year (FY) 2018 on March 16, it was followed by a supplemental request for FY 2017 for additional defense spending, partly offset by non-defense reductions. During the last week of March, a document was released that purported to list options developed by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) to achieve savings in FY 2017 non-defense discretionary spending, pursuant to the president’s request.

This Budget Brief identifies options with an impact on states. Fifty-state estimates are available below.
