“Making Sense of the Federal Budget Process”
February 27, 2013
12:00 – 12:30 pm EST
Director of Government Relations Emily Feltren and Public Policy Associate Elizabeth Holland will walk you through the twists and turns of the federal budget process and help you understand where your voice is most needed. We’ll help demystify the budget process by answering questions like: How does the budget process work? Is there a timeline for appropriations bills? What’s the difference between discretionary and mandatory spending?
This training is available at no additional cost for AALL members and chapter members. Register by February 25th.
