Lawmakers protest proposed Coast Guard cuts
from HS Today
Members of Congress have criticized proposed reductions to the budget of the U.S. Coast Guard, saying the fiscal 2011 budget proposal introduced by the White House could leave the Coast Guard without the necessary resources to fulfill its responsibilities. Rep. Peter T. King R-N.Y., ranking member of the House Homeland Security Committee, took aim at specific cuts proposed for the USCG Maritime Safety and Security Teams.
