Budget Cut

A reduction in the amount a department within a company or government may spend over a given period of time. Budget cuts often result from reduced revenue, or sometimes from prioritization of other resources. For example, if the state of Oklahoma receives 10% less tax revenue in a year than it received the previous year, it may institute 10% budget cuts on all state agencies so the state remains in balance.
