House Subcommittee Holds Hearing on EPA’s FY 2020 Budget – Update from Bergeson & Campbell, P.C.

On April 9, 2019, the House Energy and Commerce Subcommittee on Environment and Climate Change held a hearing on the fiscal year (FY) 2020 budget for the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.  The April 5, 2019, memorandum from Representative Frank Pallone, Jr. (D-NJ), Chair of the Committee on Energy and Commerce, states that President Trump’s FY 2020 budget requests $6.068 billion for EPA, a $2.76 billion (31 percent) decrease from the level set in EPA’s FY 2019 Annualized Continuing Resolution.  According to the memorandum, the budget cuts “would significantly hinder the agency from accomplishing several of its own identified goals.”

Please see the full memorandum for more information on EPA’s budget priorities and a commentary.
