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 Overview of the Federal Budget Process 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.
