House Republicans released their proposal to balance the federal budget in 10 years, which included their plans to rein in the regulatory power of the Environmental Protection Agency.
Republicans plan three broad reforms for the EPA: reduce its funding, cut global warming programs, and eliminate the agency’s policy office.

“The Environmental Protection Agency has long overreached in its duties,” the House budget resolution, released Tuesday, reads.
Americans need an alternative to the mainstream media. But this can't be done alone. 
“While everyone supports protecting the environment and promoting clean air and clean water, the states are better positioned to address their individual environmental concerns and balance those responsibilities with the concerns of workers, small-businesses, and manufacturers,” the resolution adds.
However, the House’s plan for the EPA would cut the agency’s budget 80 percent less than what the White house recommended in its May budget proposal.
A House appropriations bill introduced days ago gives the EPA a $7.5 billion budget in fiscal year 2018, or $528 million less than the agency’s 2017 budget. The bill also ignored many Trump administration requests to cut dozens of EPA programs. That bill is still making its way through committee.
The House appropriations bill would give $31.4 billion to federal environmental programs at the EPA, Department of the Interior, and other agencies. That’s $824 million below 2017 levels, but $4.3 billion less than the White House’s request.
