The House Appropriations Committee approved a spending plan outlining allocations to the various appropriations subcommittees on May 22. The plan, which is based on the House-passed fiscal year 2014 budget, represents significant cuts to energy and environmental programs. The proposal recommends spending on the environment, interior, and related agencies at 18.4 percent below current levels and spending for energy and water development and related agencies at 17 percent below current levels.
