Deficit commission finds a few more cuts to make
from Government Executive
President Obama's deficit reduction commission will propose saving $1 billion by eliminating overlap in Homeland Security Department grant programs and $100 million by cutting the budget for obsolete international broadcast operations by 10 percent. These are the only two additions to a list of more than $200 billion in proposed cuts the commission is fine tuning, according to a revised draft of an "illustrative savings" list the commission is expected to release soon as an appendix to its report.
