EPA’s new budget for 2010

epa-budget-chartThe White House has proposed the largest budget increase in EPA’s 39-year history.

The Obama Administration is proposing to spend $10.5 billion in 2010 on EPA including $3.9 billion for the agency’s operating budget which includes research, enforcement and regulatory activities.

The White House also proposes to re-impose the Superfund tax that had expired in 1995. The tax would go in later years after the economy has recovered. It would generate $1 billion for toxic site cleanups.
