Each year, the Northeast-Midwest Institute, in conjunction with the bipartisan Northeast-Midwest Congressional Coalitions produce a rapid review of the President’s FY2013 budget request to inform the Northeast-Midwest House and Senate Coalitions, states, and other regional partners of the budget’s implications for the Northeast-Midwest region. The full report, which covers more than 70 programs of regional importance, is available here.  Specific program funding numbers will be updated regularly on the Institute’s website.

Today, the President will release his federal budget proposal for fiscal year 2013 at 11:15am.  The proposal will outline a spending plan for all federal agencies–and will likely include a series of cuts to reduce the federal deficit.

Early reports indicate that the budget will include $31 million to continue deepening the Delaware River shipping channel.

Congress will likely spend time this week on the Transportation reauthorization package (H.R. 7).  Committees will hold several hearings to scrutinize elements of the Administration’s budget.
