Trump Wants EPA's Budget At The Lowest Level In 40 Years

President Donald Trump will recommend cutting the EPA budget 31 percent.

Trump will release his “skinny budget” Thursday morning, broadly laying out the White House’s budget request. Trump will push for a $2.6 billion cut to EPA’s budget, congressional staffers familiar with the request told NYT.

Previous reporting indicated Trump wanted to cut EPA’s budget 25 percent, or $2 billion, and reduce its staff by 20 percent, or 3,000 employees. But in the last couple of days, sources told reporters the cuts would likely be deeper.

Trump is expected to cut dozens of EPA global warming programs, funding to environmental groups and state grants. EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt said he would push to protect grants to states for environmental cleanup and water infrastructure.

Let the states run their own EPAs. Close the federal EPA down!

If one department needs to suck it up, then all of them do. Let's get this back to a manageable but workable budget.

Amazing, Marylanders know how to create GoFundMe accounts for everything under the sun but not for the Bay? If you're that concerned about the Bay then do something to raise the money yourselves.

Get a grip. You look like morons.

Yes the wall is more important. Our natural resources, that the dumbocrats want to keep from us, will be just fine as we make the quality life better by utilizing the resources.

You really need to see the big picture instead of reading the dumbocrat talking points.
