GOP Cuts Target EPA, High Speed Rail

The EPA’s cuts alone are estimated at $1.6 billion from Obama’s 2011 budget. Among the cuts, the elimination of President Barack Obama’s $5 billion high-speed rail initiative is no surprise.  The Energy Department appears especially hard hit. Its current energy efficiency and renewable energy programs would be cut virtually in half, and Republicans are also proposing to provide just $4.01 billion for energy science—an 18 percent or $893 million cut from last year’s appropriations.
