On Monday, the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) released the President’s FY 2010 Budget (Peter Orzsag, Director of OMB, blogged about it here). In addition, for the second year in a row, the Government Printing Office (GPO) has released an authenticated online version of the budget, this year through the new FDsys.
As you might remember, GPO stepped in last year when the White House released an online-only version of the budget. GPO quickly announced that it would also publish the budget in print and distribute 1 or 2 sets at no cost to members of Congress, as well as distributing the print version of the new budget to federal depository libraries. At the time, GPO also announced that it would authenticate the online version of the budget, using the same technology GPO uses to authenticate the online versions of public and private laws.
