CBO: Federal Budget

CBO Logo

The Congressional Budget Office‘s ”regular budget publications include semiannual reports on the budget and economic outlook, annual reports analyzing the President’s budget and discussing the long-term budget picture, and a biannual set of options for reducing budget deficits. CBO also prepares cost estimates and mandate statements for nearly every bill that is reported by a Congressional committee. Numerous analytic studies provide more in-depth analysis of specific budgetary issues.”

See CBO, Federal Budget.

“Since its founding in 1974, the Congressional Budget Office has produced independent, nonpartisan, timely analysis of economic and budgetary issues to support the Congressional budget process. The agency’s long tradition of nonpartisanship is evident in each of the dozens of reports and hundreds of cost estimates its economists and policy analysts produce each year. CBO analyses do not make policy recommendations, and each report and cost estimate discloses our assumptions and methodologies. All CBO employees are appointed solely on the basis of professional competence, without regard to political affiliation.”
