The White House Office of Management and Budget typically posts the budget request in the morning. The documents provide a high-level look at the entire government. Individual agencies will follow with their own budget documents. The Department of the Interior, which includes the BIA, usually updates doi.gov/budget with the latest request. The Department of Health and Human Services, which includes the IHS, typically posts the request at .hhs.gov/about/budget. IHS documents should be available at ihs.gov/budgetformulation/congressionaljustifications. Trump's request, though, isn't the end of the story. It is up to Congress to appropriate the funds for the BIA, the IHS and other agencies, and members from both parties frequently work together to reverse the president's cuts. To help make the case, members of the House Committee on Appropriations will be hearing from dozens of tribal, Indian and Native leaders this week. Starting on Tuesday morning, they will hold four sessions of public witness testimony.
