WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama proposed a record $4.1 trillion budget on Tuesday. Here's a look at each agency and department:
Up or down? Down 5.3 percent
— Obama's budget for the Agriculture Department includes a proposed $12 billion over 10 years to help feed schoolchildren from low-income families during the summer. Nearly 22 million low-income children receive free and reduced-price meals during the school year, but just a fraction of those kids receive meals when school is out. Benefits under the proposed program would be loaded onto a debit card that can only be used for food at grocery stores.
Total spending: $155.4 billion, including spending already required by law for food stamps, other government nutrition programs and farm subsidies.
Spending that needs Congress' annual approval: $24.2 billion.
