In today's Problem-Solver's Daily, there is still work to be done on the budgets, a candidate is committed to taking no pledges and Sen. Harry Reid throws out the idea of budgets being in a two year cycle.
U.S. presidents have been required to submit an annual budget proposal since the Budget Proposal Act of 1921. The deadlines have changed over the years, but the current one states that the budget must be submitted no later than the first Monday in February.
