Proposed Federal budget includes much more for EPA
March 3, 2009
The President's proposed 2009-2010 budget for the EPA
includes an estimated one-third increase over the 2008-2009 budget. The new funding proposal includes just shy of $4 billion for State Revolving Funds, which Iowa has used aggressively
to fund water-quality improvement programs. If the additional funding makes its way through Congress and to the states, municipal water
projects could be on the rise in the coming months.
