+ - House Appropriations Committee Proposes Budget->

Submitted by BJ_Covert_Action
BJ_Covert_Action (1499847) writes "The House of Representatives Committee on Appropriations has released a list of proposed spending cuts for the U.S. Federal Government. The proposed cuts include reductions in spending on many science organizations and funds such as NASA, NOAA, nuclear energy research, fossil fuel energy research, clean coal research, the CDC, the NIH, and numerous EPA programs. There are also quite a few cuts proposed on domestic services, such as Americorps and high speed rail research. The House Appropriations Chairman Hal Rogers acknowledges that the cuts go deep, and would hurt every district across the country. But they are still deemed necessary to rein in Congressional spending.

Notoriously absent from the proposed budget cuts are two of the largest spending sinks in the federal budget: the Department of Defense and Social Security."
