The federal budget shapes the future of the nation and has far-reaching impacts across industries and organizations. With the administration and Congress off to a late start in the federal budget process, and with a looming fight over the nation’s debt limit, time is running out to prepare for the impacts on your organization, industry, and issues.

As federal agencies, Congress, and the White House’s Office of Management and Budget work on an appropriations framework for the upcoming 2024 fiscal year, government affairs professionals must act quickly to stay ahead of the curve and make sure their issues are represented fairly.
