EPA, clean energy spared Trump's ax in $1.1 trillion budget deal
Environmental programs marked for death or deep cuts by President Donald Trump got a reprieve in the government funding deal revealed early Monday, May 1, by congressional leaders — at least for now. The Environmental Protection Agency, targeted for $247 million in cuts for this year's funding, instead escaped with a budget trimmed by $81 million — or 1 percent — and no staff reductions. Research divisions within the Department of Energy received increases despite calls by Trump to slash or eliminate them.
