House Appropriations Committee Votes to Cut Energy Star by 40 Percent

The House Appropriations Committee voted on July 18 to pass the Fiscal Year 2018 Interior and Environment Appropriations Bill, which provides $31.4 billion to federal investments in natural resources. This budget is $824 million less than 2017, and part of that cut is to 2018 Energy Star funding, which would drop to $31 million, a reduction of 40 percent. The bill is $4.3 billion more than the Trump administration’s budget request. The administration had previously called for the complete defunding of the Energy Star program. http://www.ecmag.com/section/green-building/house-appropriations-committee-votes-cut-energy-star-40-percent
