Education funding outlook bleak under Trump's budget


EDUCATION FUNDING OUTLOOK BLEAK UNDER TRUMP’S BUDGET: House lawmakers tasked with writing a bill to fund education, labor and health programs are bracing for President Donald Trump’s budget to call for massive cuts. The lawmakers revealed Wednesday that those proposed cuts could run as high as $20 billion — a roughly 12-percent drop from the $161.6 billion that the panel tasked with funding those programs proposed in the still-unpassed bill for fiscal year 2017. “That just would be truly devastating,” said Rep. Rosa DeLauro (D-Conn.), ranking member of the House appropriations subcommittee that oversees those areas. “We couldn’t sustain the needs of the programs that are under our jurisdiction.”
