This summer the Congressional Budget Office will release several reports on the budget and the economy. The first three center on the agency’s long-term budget projections, and the last is an update to CBO’s economic forecast, which will focus on the next three years. Below is the release schedule:

  • The 2023 Long-Term Budget Outlook, Wednesday, June 28 at 2 p.m.;
  • CBO’s 2023 Long-Term Projections for Social Security, Thursday, June 29 at 2 p.m.;
  • The Long-Term Budget Outlook Under Alternative Paths for the Economy and the Budget, Thursday, July 20 at 2 p.m.; and
  • An Update to the Economic Outlook: 2023 to 2025, Wednesday, July 26 at 2 p.m.

CBO’s most recent 10-year budget projections were released in May and CBO’s most recent economic projections were released in February. Last week, CBO released a short report to show how the Fiscal Responsibility Act of 2023 affects the agency’s projections of federal debt over the next decade. CBO will provide a comprehensive update to its 10-year budget and economic projections the next time it publishes the Budget and Economic Outlook, which it usually does in the winter.

Deborah Kilroe is CBO’s Director of Communications.

Corrections and Updates: On June 30, this blog post was updated to note a change in the release date for An Update to the Economic Outlook: 2023 to 2025. That report will be released on Wednesday, July 26 at 2 p.m., rather than on July 31.
