Budget requests, agency-by-agency

President Obama's fiscal 2012 budget calls for cuts in discretionary spending at eight of the major non-security agencies. The Commerce and Justice departments face the steepest cuts: Justice would lose $6.7 billion in discretionary budget authority under Obama's proposal, a 24.3 percent decrease from fiscal 2010, while Commerce's budget would decrease by $5.1 billion -- a whopping 36.7 percent decline from its overall fiscal 2010 budget.

Agencies that would see budget boosts under the president's proposal include the Education, Homeland Security and Veterans Affairs departments.
