The 2014 United States federal budget is the budget to fund government operations for the fiscal year 2014, which begins on October 1, 2013 and ends on September 30, 2014. The original spending request was issued by President Barack Obama in April 2012. The actual appropriations for fiscal year 2014 must be enacted by the full Congress before they can take effect, in accordance with the United States budget process. The Fiscal Year (FY) 2014 United States Budget existed only as several competing drafts as of late March 2013 before President Obama submitted his budget proposal for the 2014FY on April 10, 2013, two months past the February 4 legal deadline due to negotiations over the United States fiscal cliff and implementation of the sequester cuts mandated by the Budget Control Act of 2011.
