Early last week, the Biden Administration announced its proposed budget for Fiscal Year (FY) 2025. These annual proposed budgets represent the administration’s “spending wish list” and usually differ significantly from the appropriations bills enacted by Congress. President Biden’s $7.3 trillion budget proposal would increase revenues by an estimated $4.9 trillion over the next decade; these added revenues would help trim the deficit by $3 trillion with the remaining $1.9 trillion going to fund various programs. For Health and Human Services (HHS), the Biden Administration is requesting a discretionary budget of $130.7 billion for FY 2025 – a 1.7% increase from the 2023 spending level.
