It seems that regardless of their status as a public or private agency, many entities are concerned with the budgetary process at the federal level. Describe the federal budgetary process and explain what checks and balances are in place and why they are important.
Research and explain the following:
- What are the opportunities different groups and entities have to make their concerns known while the budget is being developed?
- What are the differences in the opportunities afforded to various types of groups to provide that input?
- Why do you think some groups are given more opportunities and some fewer?
Support your explanation with an appropriate rationale, citation, and reference.
