Abstract

It is obvious that the federal budget is central to the functioning of the administrative state. But a critical element about the federal budget is often missing from analyses of both the budget and the administrative state more generally: the way the President’s budget process — the year-round, continuous process of developing the new budget while executing the last one — provides a major source of control over agency policy choices, regardless of whether or how much Congress eventually appropriates at all. Scholars, practitioners, and observers of the administrative state ought to acknowledge this reality and consider its implications.
