OMB Pushes for Full EEOC Funding
OMB is pressing the Senate to fund EEOC at the level previously approved by the Senate Appropriations Committee, instead of the level approved by the House in July. In a policy statement released this week, OMB said it "appreciates" the Senate committee’s previous support of the administration's $335 million budget request. In July, OMB worried that with the budget approved by the House, EEOC might "have to postpone key management reforms that will allow it to serve citizens more efficiently."
"The administration's $335 million budget request included roughly $5 million for agency reforms, including the establishment of a national center to handle inquiries about discrimination cases."
