The White House in August will present a new budget proposal that will be sharply critical of the federal government’s environmental protection agencies.
The budget, known internally as a “skinny” by many in the administration, will propose a nearly $2.6 trillion cut across nearly 20 programs that are critical to keeping America’s air, water and other natural resources free and safe from the ravages of pollution, a senior White House official said Wednesday.
The proposed cuts in various programs would mark the first significant budget reduction since President Obama took office on Jan. 20. An annual budget summary is now expected to release Friday, the official said.
In the White House budget presentation, the administration will suggest that $600 million in EPA funding be cut from the $854 million planned this year.
The budget also will ask Congress to eliminate its spending limitations — a move certain to anger environmental groups and their allies in Congress, who object to federal spending caps that effectively limit what they can spend.
White House officials said those cuts will be necessary to achieve President Obama’s goal of reducing the national debt to 33 percent of gross domestic product by 2020 from 42 percent by now.
White House budget director Steven Rattner said the administration is seeking to provide fiscal accountability to taxpayers by reducing some programs “that make our country unbalanced and have little purpose as investments.”
One such program is the Environmental Protection Agency’s Clean Air Data Fund. The fund provides money to cities and states to help fund pollution-control projects.
The White House’s proposed cuts would also include eliminating funding for the Office of Surface Mining Reclamation and Enforcement (OSMRE), which regulates mining by requiring miners to test the quality of their ore before mining begins. The agency’s budget has been held flat under the White House for the last four years.
Also on the chopping block would be the Office of Community Oriented Policing Services — a government initiative that includes neighborhood watch programs and local police enforcement.
Rabbi Rick Jacobs, executive director of the Orthodox Union’s lobbying arm, said that the cuts would be “extremely damaging, because they will be going back in time and undermining the gains that the Civil Rights and Voting Rights Act has made.”
In 2012, the $2.8 trillion national debt, which includes Social Security and Medicare liabilities, totaled $18.5 trillion. Most
