Rep. Mick Mulvaney is pushing for an early vote on President Barack Obama’s 2014 budget, now, even though it’s not expected to be released until April 8.

So the House vote would be on a blank page, The Hill reports. It would come as an amendment to the budget offered by House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan. That’s due to hit the floor this week.

The South Carolina Republican “is planning to offer the president’s budget, . . . as he did last year,” a Mulvaney aide told The Hill. “Except this year, the president hasn’t submitted anything. So it will be blank.”

The House Rules Committee is meeting Monday to decide on amendments to the Ryan budget, and it’s not clear whether Mulvaney’s will make the cut.

Obama’s budget was rejected in a unanimous vote in the House last year when Mulvaney offered it as an amendment to that version of Ryan’s budget. The White House, calling the amendment a publicity stunt, urged Democrats to vote against it.

According to law, Obama was supposed to submit a budget by Feb. 4. This is the first time during the modern budget process that the president will introduce his budget after both chambers of Congress finished their own budget work, The Hill reported.
