President Trump has asked Congress to cut $54 billion from federal agencies to fund defense spending. Here are the agencies that would see the biggest cuts under the White House proposal:
1. EPA — 31.4 percent cut
The budget calls for cutting Environmental Protection Agency spending by $2.6 billion. The reduction would include ending funding for the Clean Power Plan, eliminating funding for regional efforts like a Great Lakes restoration program, and much more.
2. State Dept., USAID, Treasury International Programs — 28.7 percent cut
State and USAID would see a $10 billion cut from last year's level. While funding for embassy security and diplomatic duties wouldn't be crimped, foreign aid and support for multilateral organizations would be.
