TOMORROW: EPA Administrator to Testify on Fiscal Year 2013 Budget

WASHINGTON – Tomorrow, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Administrator Lisa P. Jackson and Chief Financial Officer Barbara Bennett will testify before the Senate Appropriations Committee Subcommittee on Interior, Environment and Related Agencies on EPA’s proposed Fiscal Year (FY) 2013 budget.

On February 13, the Obama Administration proposed an FY 2013 budget of $8.344 billion for EPA. This budget reflects a government-wide effort to reduce spending and find cost-savings, and is $105 million below the EPA’s enacted level for FY 2012. The FY 2013 budget is the result of EPA’s ongoing efforts to carefully consider potential cost savings and reductions while continuing its commitment to core environmental and health protections — safeguarding Americans from pollution in the air they breathe, the water they drink and the land where they build their communities.

Hearing details:

WHO: EPA Administrator Lisa P. Jackson
EPA Chief Financial Officer Barbara J. Bennett

WHAT: Testifying before Senate Appropriations Committee Subcommittee on Interior, Environment and Related Agencies

WHEN: 10:30 a.m., Wednesday, May 16
