This letter expresses the states’ concerns over the passback budget process between the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Specifically, the letter details ECOS’ opposition to the information released yesterday that OMB’s passback for the Fiscal Year (FY) 2018 EPA budget proposed cuts of 30 percent to State and Tribal Assistance Grant (STAG) categorical grants, and cuts to infrastructure and other important state programs. ECOS argues that cuts to STAG categorical grants, or to EPA programs operated by states, will have profound impacts on states’ ability to implement the core environmental programs as expected by our citizens.
