"On February 13, 2012, the Obama Administration released its detailed budget request for FY2013. The Administration's proposed budget includes $677.8 million in special federal payments to the District of Columbia, which is $12.2 million more than the District's FY2012 appropriation of $665.6 million in special federal payments. Approximately 78% ($526.7 million) of the President's proposed budget request for the District would be targeted to the courts and criminal justice system. The President's budget request also includes $95.6 million in support of education initiatives. This represents 14% of the Administration's federal payment budget request for the District of Columbia."
