FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
TOMORROW: EPA Administrator to Testify on Fiscal Year 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.

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