Chesapeake Bay Among Concerns of Maryland Lawmakers Under Trump Budget Proposal

 

Maryland Democrats voiced their displeasure with the Trump administration’s budget proposals this week, citing federal cuts to Chesapeake Bay cleanup efforts, the Appalachian Regional Commission and the National Institutes of Health.

 

In response to his budget blueprint, which cuts $5.8 billion from the National Institutes of Health (NIH), U.S. Senators Chris Van Hollen and Ben Cardin (both D-Md.) have written to President Trump inviting him to visit NIH to see for himself the life-saving working being done in nearby Bethesda. The letter, found below, urges the president to reverse his budget cuts so that the United States can maintain its global scientific dominance.

Md. senators urge President Trump to reconsider budget cuts to NIH ​

Maryland's senators are urging President Donald Trump to reconsider his plans to cut the budget for the National Institutes of Health (NIH).

U.S. Senators Chris Van Hollen (D-MD) and Dick Durbin (D-IL) today reintroduced The American Cures Act to preserve America’s standing as a leader in scientific discovery and innovation. The bill would steadily increase funding for biomedical and scientific research conducted at the nation’s premier federal research agencies.

U.S. Senator Chris Van Hollen, a member of the Senate Budget and Appropriations Committees, released the following statement on President Trump’s FY 2018 budget:

“The President’s budget is great if you’re a person like Donald Trump who flies to Mar-a-Lago every weekend at taxpayer expense – but it betrays the Americans who feel left behind and forgotten. And for the people who supported him, especially in rural areas of our country, they are hit particularly hard.
