Help your students to understand how the federal budget is established using CEE’s animated video Overview of the Federal Budget Process. The video is based upon the https://econedlink.org/wp-content/uploads/legacy/UFR-Overview-of-the-Budget-Process.pdf handout supplementing Understanding Fiscal Responsibility lessons and provides an introduction into the decisions that go into establishing the federal budget. In this video, students engage in a discussion on who is making these decisions and how they might influence the process.
