Budgets on the Brain...and on the Train...

Who knew the federal budget was so popular?

A mobile website of President Obama's fiscal 2013 budget request received about 53,000 visitors during its first 24 hours online, a spokesman for the Government Printing Office told Nextgov Tuesday.

To put that in context, GPO's first mobile site -- a detailed list of all members of the 112th Congress organized by state, party or chamber -- has only had about 50,000 visitors since it was launched in November, GPO Spokesman Gary Somerset said.
