EPA a big loser in Trump budget
The proposed budget $9.6 billion for the Department of Labor, which represents a $2.5 billion or 21 percent decrease from the 2017 annualized CR level. Among the programs which could be eliminated: OSHA’s training grants.The departments of State, Commerce, Agriculture, Energy, Transportation and Housing and Urban Development would see deep cuts as well. Many federal jobs would be eliminated.
The budget calls for a $54 billion increase in defense spending.
Increases will go toward cracking down on illegal immigration and fighting terrorism and cybercrime.
Some of the proposal's features are expected to meet with Congressional opposition and it is unlikely to be passed without revisions.
The Trump administration said a more detailed budget would be released in May – one that contains the president's plan for Medicare and Social Security.
