“EPA Would Get $9 Billion Budget for This Fiscal Year”

“The EPA would get $9.06 billion in the current fiscal year ending next September under a spending bill that Congress will vote on this week.

The agency would receive $208 million more in fiscal 2020 than the current $8.8 billion budget. That’s nearly $3 billion more than President Donald Trump’s budget request, but less than the $9.53 billion offered in the House bill that passed the chamber in June. It’s similar to the levels in the Senate-passed bill.”

Tiffany Stecker reports for Bloomberg December 16, 2019.
