PRESIDENT TO DELIVER STATE OF THE UNION ADDRESS

(February 11, 2013) - President Barack Obama will deliver the annual State of the Union Address on February 12th at 9:00 p.m. EST.  The address will outline many of the Administration's funding priorities for the coming year.  Shortly after the address, the White House is expected to release its budget proposal for Fiscal Year 2014 (the federal budget cycle is October 1st - September 31st).  Of particular interest to the national fire service organizations is the budget for the Department of Homeland Security.  Following the release of the budget, CFSI will study the proposal and provide its findings on figures for key fire service programs - including USFA/NFA and AFG/SAFER.
