The White House wants to eliminate Environmental Protection Agency funds for water projects in Alaska Native villages, according to an article in the Washington Post on Wednesday, March. 1. The article said the Trump administration’s plans for the EPA budget also include trimming grants to states by 30 percent and eliminating climate-change initiatives.
President Donald Trump’s first budget proposal is expected in mid-March, and it reportedly includes a 25 percent cut to the Environmental Protection Agency. That’s music to the ears of many Republicans, and many Alaskans, who feel the EPA has overstepped its bounds.
