( – President Biden is currently preparing for his State of the Union address, however, several Congress Republicans have proposed that the President needs to be held accountable for missing the deadline to inform Congress about his spending and national security plans. The proposal by the GOP congress members titled Send Us Budget Materials & International Tactics In Time, or SUBMIT Act for short, proposes that the President should not be allowed to give a grand speech after missing the deadline. 

The Budget and Accounting Act of 1921, which has had multiple updates over the years, requires that the President sends his budget requests to Congress by the first Monday in February. The National Security Act of 1947 requires that the president submit a national security proposal on the same day as the budget. However, currently, there are no enforcement mechanisms currently in place for either of these acts. The SUBMIT Act would help mitigate that. 

Rep. Buddy Carter, R-Ga., who is sponsoring the bill, has argued that the budget was due on Feb. 5 and that so far Congress has yet to receive the request. He added that this was irresponsible and that the President should not be delivering a State of the Union address until those have been delivered. 

The SUBMIT IT Act would block both the Senate and House from inviting the President to a Congress joint station where he could deliver the State of the Union address. If the bill is successful it would affect the state of the Union after 2025, however, it would not have any impact on Biden’s March 7 State of the Union address.
