ASPET Statement in Response to the President Trump’s Fiscal Year (FY) 2018 Budget Blueprint

Go back To Policy Updates

The White House FY2018 budget outline was released this week with devastating proposed cuts to the NIH and other agencies. Specifically, it cuts $54 billion in non-defense discretionary (NDD) spending across the government, including reducing the NIH budget by $5.8 billion (nearly 20 percent) and the DOE Office of Science budget by $900 million (approximately 17 percent). The release of the Administration’s budget proposal is the first step in the lengthy federal budget and appropriations process; a complete White House FY 2018 budget will be sent to Congress in May.

ASPET issued a statement urging Congress to reject the Administration’s budget proposal. Read the full statement here.
