    They're both standard words in the dictionary...

    Draft
    1. a preliminary verson of a piece of writing: a plan or sketch.


    Budget
    1. an estimate of income and expenditure for a set period of time. A regular estimate of national revenue and expenditure put forward by a finance minister.

    It could mean a few things, depending on the context. The most likely is that it's a preliminary budget for people to review before it becomes final, but we can't be certain unless you tell us more about where you saw this phrase.

    In my country the president gives the parliment a preliminary budget plan that needs to be approved by MPs. I wanted to see if there is such thing in other countries and if draft budget is the right term for it.

    As a note for the future, this should have been your first post. ;)
