BEHNA: WOW! Official Says President Trump Could Potentially Cut $1 Billion From EPA
President Trump could potentially cut $1 billion from the EPA, according to an official.

It has been projected by Myron Ebell, a former official from President Trump’s transition team, that the Administration could potentially cut $1 billion from the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) budget.

The Associated Press reports on an interview they conducted with Ebell.

Myron Ebell said in an interview with The Associated Press that his specific recommendations to the White House remain confidential. But Ebell, who left the transition team last week, said it was reasonable to expect the president to seek a cut of about $1 billion from the EPA’s roughly $8 billion annual budget.

He also said Trump is likely to seek significant reductions to the agency’s workforce, currently about 15,000 employees nationwide, with 8,000 of those in Washington. Ebell declined to discuss specific numbers of EPA staff that could be targeted for pink slips. Asked what he would personally like to see, however, Ebell replied that slashing the agency’s workforce by half would be a good start.

Considering all the waste that comes from the EPA, this would sound like good news. This is the same bureaucracy  that was responsible for spilling toxic chemicals into the Animas River in 2015.

And I have optimism that the new nominee for the EPA, Scott Pruitt, will be much better than former Administrator Gina McCarthy was under Obama.
