NYT Cute Budget Visualization Tool

The NYT has a great tool for visualizing the President’s proposed 2012 Federal budget.

It shows the whole budget as blocks, and you can zoom in and/or search by agency (LSC at $450 million, SJI at $5 million).

For anyone who is worried, the current Republican House Appropriation Committee number for LSC for the current year is $ 360 million (search for “legal services”). This is $10 million less than the number from earlier last week and $70 million less than the prior year.

It would be nice to show court and program caseloads in the same way.
