HOUSTON, June 5, 2017 /PRNewswire/Dean Zerbe, the National Managing Director of alliantgroup and former Senior Counsel to the U.S. Senate Finance Committee released his statement on the president’s proposed budget. While presidential budgets are never adopted as drafted by Congress, in his full statement Zerbe highlights their importance in signaling the administration’s priorities.

“Presidential budgets are still important as they provide a clear indicator of the White House’s priorities and the policies the administration is likely to pursue,” said Zerbe.

Zerbe’s full comments on the president’s budget can be found here.

“The main takeaway…is that the president will need to lean on Congress to push through his priorities—be it comprehensive tax reform or any of the items discussed above,” said Zerbe. “In the end, the president’s relationship with Congress will determine his ultimate success.”
