The budget cut on science and environmental programs proposed by President Donald Trump would impact Delmarva significantly. Trump is planning to cut the EPA budget from $8.1 billion to $5.7 billion in the coming years, which would oust about 20 percent of the agency’s current workforce. It would also eliminate funding for regional programs, which include the clean-up of the Chesapeake Bay. This plan would slash funds for the Clean Power Plan, which would significantly damage the Chesapeake Bay efforts that have been in place the last few years.
