Trump budget provides $13 billion to combat opioid crisis

Officials: At least 17 killed in Florida high school shooting

Come back with a proposal. Efforts to fight the opioid epidemic, local medical researchers and the Niagara Falls Air Reserve Station appear to be among the Western New York winners in the spending plan.

Still, the proposed cuts drew a rebuke from the top Democrat on the House of Representatives Budget Committee, John Yarmuth. A Trump aide singled out Los Angeles County's Measure M sales tax increase as a "good case study" for how locals could help pay for public transit and road improvements.

"You're creating an incentive to bring capital into communities that are now being overlooked", Ms. Trump said.

Other local lawmakers had even harsher words for Trump's budget. The plan includes $100 billion for an incentives program "to spur additional dedicated funds from States, localities, and the private sector". "In this context, higher deficit spending seems to be fiscally irresponsible".

"When you get a job, that's not the end of the story, that's often where the story begins", said Heather Hahn, senior fellow in the Center for Labor, Human Services and Population at the Urban Institute. If enacted, his plan would establish annual $1 trillion-plus deficits, a major reversal for Republicans who objected to increased spending during the Obama administration.

His plan lets Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke approve natural gas pipelines to cut through national parks without any oversight whatsoever.

The administration proposed reclassifying the project in a section headlined "Increases Transparency for the American Taxpayer" without explaining its motives. And more recent statistics, from January, show that there were 79,874 people in Erie County alone on the expanded Medicaid program that Trump would like to eliminate.

"Considering the fact that we've always been a party that has believed you don't need higher tax rates - you need more taxpayers to turn the budget around", said Grassley, a former chairman of the Senate Finance Committee. Insurers and medical professionals are sure to object, though, and argue that patients would obviously somehow suffer if spending were to be cut so deeply.

In addition, Trump is proposed a full-scale redesign of SNAP, which now provides an average of $125 per month to 42.2 million Americans. More details could be coming this week, he suggested.

Without both, there would have been no agreement to break a long deadlock.

Great Lakes Restoration Initiative: Funded at $300 million this year, Trump would cut that to $30 million. Lawmakers from the Great Lakes states fought off a Trump proposal to eliminate the Great Lakes cleanup program previous year.

Community Development Block Grant: Once again, Trump proposes eliminating a program that Buffalo uses for neighborhood improvements across the city. Congress has trimmed funding for the program over the years, but it still brings about $21 million annually to the Buffalo metro area.

The war on opioids: Trump wants to add another $13 billion to federal efforts to fight the opioid epidemic, which claimed an estimated 316 lives in Erie County past year.

Stacy Dean, vice president for food assistance policy at the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities, said the work requirement initiatives are created to get millions of people who now rely on SNAP benefits off the rolls rather than encourage or enable more people to find and keep jobs.

And, not only had Congress passed a new deal to allow more spending, but had nearly completely ignored all the cuts that the White House sent up previous year, the budget director fumed.

Trump took to Twitter earlier this week saying, "After so stupidly spending $7 trillion in the Middle East, it is now time to start investing in OUR country!"

More: Trump's military parade is not a new idea. The project is so expensive because it involves tearing down two old buildings, conducting an environmental impact study and then building a new facility.
