Washington, D.C. – U.S. Rep. Ed Perlmutter (CO-07) issued the following statement on the Trump Administration’s budget proposal.
“Though short on details, Democrats and Republicans should agree President Trump’s budget proposal takes us backward not forward. It’s unacceptable to balance the budget on the backs of hard working families here in Colorado and across the country. I cannot support a budget that among other things proposes deep cuts to the National Renewable Energy Lab (NREL), environmental protections and education programs such as financial aid, Head Start and after-school programs. I will continue to fight against cuts affecting hardworking families, federal employees, businesses, universities and research organizations.”
