"Appropriations: Senate To Release Interior-EPA Bill"

"Senate appropriators aren't likely to follow the White House's lead this week when they mark up their fiscal 2018 spending bill for U.S. EPA and the Interior Department.

Republicans and Democrats on the committee have expressed dissatisfaction with a range of recommended reductions from the Trump administration, including to Interior's Land and Water Conservation Fund and EPA's overall budget.

The Interior, Environment and Related Agencies Appropriations Subcommittee, led by Chairwoman Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska), will consider the bill [Tuesday]. The full committee plans to take up the legislation Thursday."
