Federal Budget Goes Paperless


For the first time, the federal budget goes green.

The 2009 fiscal year budget is available online at www.budget.gov . The digital document, whose four-book print version contained nearly 2,200 pages, is fully searchable and available for download.

Office of Management and Budget Director Jim Nussle expects the E-Budget to save nearly 20 tons of paper—or around 480 trees—and save close to $1 million over the next five years.
