President Trump’s proposed 2020 budget is the subject of multiple hearings this week before the U-S Senate Finance Committee, chaired by Iowa Senator Chuck Grassley.
The president’s spending plan reportedly calls for a 31-percent reduction in funding to the Environmental Protection Agency.
That’s two-point-eight billion dollars, and Grassley isn’t sure he’d support that deep of a cut.
OC……do its job. :13
Trump’s budget also calls for another eight-point-six billion dollars for the border wall.
Grassley notes the president has already amassed a significant amount of money for the wall in the previous appropriations bill, in addition to the money he was able to transfer under existing law.
OC……..the courts say. :19
As for the overall Trump budget of four-point-75 trillion dollars, Grassley says, “Presidents propose and Congress disposes.”
