OMB Cuts Army Corps Of Engineers Funding By 12 Percent In FY 2011 Budget
The Army Corps of Engineers would face a 12 percent funding cut next year under a draft budget request from the Obama administration. According to the Office of Management and Budget "passback," shared with top Army Corps officials in early December and recently obtained by E&E, the White House will propose $4.81 billion for the agency in the fiscal 2011 budget. That is $630 million less than the Army Corps received in this year's appropriations bill and $310 million less than the Obama administration requested for the agency last year.
