News from The Hill: White House tells Ryan it won't meet budget deadline

and this summary of the story:

The White House has informed House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) that it will miss the legal deadline for sending a budget to Congress. 
Acting Budget Director Jeff Zients told Ryan (R-Wis.) late Friday that the budget will not be delivered by Feb. 4, as required by law, a House aide said. 
“Late Friday evening, Deputy Director Zients confirmed that for the fourth time in five years, the President’s budget will not be submitted in compliance with the law,” the aide said. 
“Zients did not indicate how late the administration will delay its submission, simply noting ‘We will submit it to Congress as soon as possible,’” the aide added
