March 16, 2017 on EPA cuts in Trump’s budget

Washington, DC — Today Donald Trump released a budget proposal that would significantly cut funding for the EPA by 31 percent. In response, Executive Director May Boeve issued the following statement:

“This budget proposal makes it even more clear that Trump has no intention of protecting our communities or preserving our future. Slashing the EPA’s funding only helps make fossil fuel executives richer while wrecking the climate and leaving workers and families by the wayside. What we really need is investment in a 100% renewable energy economy that creates jobs and curbs the climate crisis, and our movements will keep fighting until we get it.”
