States Benefit from Clean Energy and Environmental Programs

Fact Sheet
May 25, 2018

Federal programs across the U.S. government help improve our environment, develop cutting-edge technology, and save consumers money. Agencies like the Environmental Protection Agency work with state and local governments to clean up past pollution and prevent current pollution, while those like the Department of Energy drive cleaner, more efficient technologies for all. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) manages the ocean and coastal resources that provide food, jobs, and recreation. And the Department of the Interior manages the utilization of America’s 500 million acres of federal public land and is responsible for their stewardship. These programs provide numerous benefits to states, yet President Trump’s budget would slash many of the most important programs to the detriment of all.
